Event description

Senator Sue Lines invites you to a special interactive community forum, along with special guests Thomas Mayo and Narelle Henry to learn more about the upcoming Voice referendum.

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. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions, share their feedback and learn about ways to engage in the local community.

This meeting is open to all community members and is being held online.

This is an opportunity for our community to 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.

Thomas is the author of four books, and has articles and essays published in The Guardian, Griffith Review and Sydney Morning Herald.
