Event description

Please join us for a community conversation at the University of Western Sydney (WSU) Kingswood Campus to learn more about the Voice Referendum. 

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, with a fantastic panel of speakers, 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. 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.

We hope to see you there!
