Understanding the Voice: Launceston Town Hall
Bridget Archer MP invites you to a Town Hall style event to learn more about the Voice Referendum at the Tramsheds Function Centre. Register to attend in person or to receive a link and tune in online.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart has extended a generous and powerful invitation to all Australians. We are embracing this invitation and asking you to join us on this journey of understanding the Voice and constitutional recognition.
Together we will talk about why constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through a Voice to Parliament is a crucial step in the walk towards reconciliation as a country. Town Hall attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, share their feedback and learn about ways to engage in their local communities.
It is an opportunity for Australians across the country to come together, learn, and engage in a constructive conversation about the Voice Referendum and its potential impact.
