This is an opportunity for our community to come together, learn, and engage in a constructive conversation about the Voice Referendum and its potential impact.The voice was a key ask from the Uluru Statement from the Heart which was an invitation to all Australians to recognise the ancestral ties that have existed for over 60,000 years and empower all First Nations people to have a Voice in their future.We are wholeheartedly accepting the invitation and would like to invite you to join us to walk together towards this historic reform.
