A Voice to Parliament
J4RSA supports the YES vote
On Saturday, 14 October 2023, Australians will have their say in a referendum about whether to change the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing a body called the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
Voters will be asked to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on a single question. The question on the ballot paper will be:
“A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
Do you approve this proposed alteration?”
Justice for Refugees SA is supporting the YES campaign because it has a strong belief in human rights and ensuring the First Nations Peoples of Australia are permanently recognised in the Australian Constitution and has an advisory voice to Parliament on issues affecting their wellbeing.
The YES vote has multi-cultural support across Australia, included the Hazara community here is SA https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-09-28/taking-the-message-of-the-yes-vote-to-the-hazara-community/102915266
