Later this year, 2023, Australians will have their say in a Referendum where people vote to express their opinion or preference on an issue. This Referendum is to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Constitution through an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament (sort of like an advisory body). The Constitution is the set of rules and principles that outline the structure and powers of the federal government.
CREATE Foundation is dedicated to giving a voice to vulnerable children and young people with a care experience in order to be heard by influential decision makers to affect change. In light of the current historical moment, where our nation is deliberating on granting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a Voice enshrined in the Australian Constitution, CREATE strongly advocates for the right of First Nations people to have a say within the Constitution.
