To whom it may concern
Co-design process: Submission
I am a PhD in organic chemistry, now working full time in research and development tax in Sydney. I grew up in the Sutherland Shire.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
Gives the indigenous population a stronger voice in Australia and how it is run. Things still need improving after this though.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
Having indigenous population at the forefront of government will hopefully improve the understanding of the culture in my community.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Legislation gets hidden by so many other acts. The voice will enable issues to be pulled to the front and discussed
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Cause all populations deserve a voice, however one that is treated so poorly by the Australian government and population needs higher representation.
