Dear Co-Design Body

Submission for Co-design process

I am an Australian citizen who is currently living and working in Singapore. I have been out of Australia for 7 years working and living in the middle-east and Asia.

Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
Because Australia is older than its modern European heritage and we must recognise this.

Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Because it is the fair and right thing to do.

How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
Help Australians' become more tolerant towards other Australians

Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Because it is a simple step in acknowledging the traditional owners of the land. It recognises the contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made and continue to make to Australia.

It's about time!

Thank you



We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the Elders past, present and emerging.
