I write in support of The Uluru statement from the Heart and now the process of enshrining The Voice in the Australian constitution. It is time for the Australian Government to redress the mistakes of the past and heal the wounds that our First Nations people have suffered with the consequence of intergenerational trauma continuing to this day.
As promised at the last election a referendum should be put to us the people and the Voice enshrined in the Constitution for all time so that our Indigenous communities take their rightful place in Society with a say in decisions regarding their welfare .
Let us not, once again ,miss this opportunity to right the wrongs of the past.
