Co-design process: Submission
I am a new lawyer who grew up in Port Macquarie and now living in Sydney. I studied in Newcastle wit ha particular interest in Australia's political history and legal future with regards to Indigenous culture and how I can do my part as a white straight cis female to help where I can.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
This is a movement by First Nations people asking to be heard in the way that they want to be heard. It's long overdue that we listen and not offer subpar options that aren't wanted or needed.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Constitution is at the heart of Australia.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
shouldn't everyone get to decide what they do and not have things done to them?
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
It would be a step towards equality and acknowledging the atrocities of the past and current.
