SUPPORTING A VOICE

Australians are getting behind a Voice to Parliament because it is:

Simple

A Voice will be a representative body made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across the country. It sits outside the Parliament and provides advice to the Parliament and Government on issues that have a particular impact on Indigenous people.

Safe

The draft addition to the Constitution is the result of many years of work. Some of the most respected and experienced constitutional experts have been involved. It is designed to be simple, effective and appropriate for the Constitution.

Practical

Australians agree the quality of life for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can and should be better. Governments have struggled to drive real change on many issues like education and health. Giving Indigenous people a real say over these issues – because they know what works best for their families and communities – will drive practical change.

Unifying

All Australians can be involved in the movement towards a referendum. It is an opportunity to contribute to a matter of national importance and deliver a unifying moment through a successful YES vote in a referendum.
