A First Nations Voice to Parliament protected by the Constitution is a key element of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
A Voice to Parliament will give Indigenous communities a route to help inform policy and legal decisions that impact their lives. Giving First Nations peoples a say in laws and policies that affect them will lead to more effective results.
Embedding a Voice in the Constitution would recognise the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s history, but importantly would also mean that it can’t be shut down by successive Governments.
