This year, we have a once in a generation opportunity to help unify our country.
Our parliament has passed legislation for a referendum to recognise our indigenous citizens as the original stewards of this great continent and to give them a Voice in the policies that affect them.
Voting is compulsory in a referendum which will be held on the 14th October this year.
I want to explain more about that and answer some of the common questions that I have had myself, and that I have been asked., so I’ve made a video series that you can view here and on my socials.
I made this series, because democratic processes should be free, fair, and trusted.
And conversations should be reasoned and reasonable.
And as your Independent member for Goldstein, I’ve consulted widely about the Voice, with people across our community, of all ages, and sought the advice of experts and people with lived experience.
I invite you to do the same, and hope this information is helpful as you consider your vote.
To volunteer and to help us in this important work, you can register here.
Why do we need a referendum on The Voice?
How does the Voice make a practical difference?
Does the Voice insert race into the Constitution?
How does The Voice include remote and regional communities?
A once in a generation opportunity.
