Strong support for First Peoples Voice to Parliament

ACOSS has coordinated a Joint Statement to the Prime Minister and the Australian Parliament in support of First Peoples having a voice to Parliament

Since the Turnbull Government's rejection of the recommendations from the Referendum Council’s Final Report to enshrine an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander First Nations Voice to Parliament and enact a Declaration of Recognition there has been widespread criticism from many quarters within the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community.

Over 7,000 people have already signed up to the Joint Statement.

If you support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples having a voice to the Australian Parliament please SIGN the Joint Statement HERE
