The Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, Minister for Indigenous Australians, has launched stage two of the Indigenous Voice co-design process, inviting all Australians to provide their feedback on the Indigenous Voice proposals.
Read the media release.
Consultation will run over the next four months, with lots of ways for people to have their say.
The Indigenous Voice proposal would have two parts - Local and Regional Voices and a National Voice.
The Local and Regional Voice proposal would be community designed and led governance structures at a regional level. They would provide advice to all levels of government about what’s important to the communities in the region. They would work in partnership with all governments to make plans on how to meet community aspirations and deliver on local priorities.
The National Voice proposal would be a body made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across the country that provides advice to the Australian Parliament and Government on laws, policies and programs that are important to Indigenous Australians.
The co-design groups will use the feedback received through the consultation period to refine the proposals and inform recommendations and the final report to the Australian Government.
