Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is the largest collaborative process for Indigenous Australians regarding a formal Voice for Parliament. All Australians need to respect and honour this important process.
Why do you think Indigenous people should have a Voice to Parliament?
A Voice to Parliament is one-way Indigenous people can inform the country’s future path as well as an opportunity to further reconciliation.
Why do you think Australia needs a Voice to Parliament?
A Voice to Parliament is an additional way Australians can listen and understand Indigenous perspectives. As a country we need to continue to find ways to understand our past, seek amends and include everyone in our future.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Enshrining the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution shows that we are serious as a nation about recognising and listening to Indigenous People.
