To whom it may concern,

I whole heartedly support the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

Acknowledgement of First Nations people in the Constitution is an important first step. The
Constitution in its current state is unequivocally incorrect. We cannot change the past, but
we can change the future and acknowledgement is where we need to start.

The Uluru Statement is about coming together as a nation for a better future for everyone.
A Voice to Parliament that is enshrined in the Constitution will ensure accurate
representation of Indigenous people. As well as providing greater protection of that voice as
we move forward together as a nation.
