To whom it may concerned,
As a first-generation migrant here in Australia, I feel very lucky to call Australia home. This country has given me and many other migrants a new life with so many opportunities to reach our potential and contribute it for common good.
While Australia has been incredibly generous and open to us as migrants, I have learned that Australia's First Nations peoples have had to endure many hardships from the time when Australia's foundation was established as a British colony until today.
I support measures that redress structural inequity that has held back progress for the way Australia treats its Indigenous Population. Enshrining First Nations Peoples in the Australia's Constitution is an important milestone and a starting point to undo a lot of the injustices that have been meted out to Australia's First Nations People.
In particular, I urge:
The government to honour its election commitment to a referendum once a model for the Voice has been settled;
The government to Enable legislation for the Voice must be passed after a referendum has been held in the next term of Parliament; and
The membership model for the National Voice must ensure previously unheard Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the same chance of being selected as established leadership figures.
I hope we can begin a process to make Australia truly a home for everyone including its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
