Dear Co-Design Body
Submission for Co-design process
I grew up in North West NSW and have witnessed the disadvantages that first peoples face in Australia.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is important because it gives a voice to first peoples who have had no voice and have suffered discrimination and injustice as a result.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
A Voice to Parliament can improve the lives in all our communities by communicating effective, practical and workable solutions which are appropriate to the needs of individual communities.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
It is obviously important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
By enshrining the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than including it only in legislation Australia would somewhat catch up on similar recognition of first peoples that have been enshrined in other countries Parliaments such as NZ and Canada
This is long overdue.
