The Jewish Community has a long and proud history of working together with first Australians on their journey towards justice and reconciliation. And this year, we have an opportunity to recognise first Australians in our constitution, and give them a say on the issues that matter to their communities.

It’s an important step forward for first Australians and all Australians. We believe it’s a step forward that the Jewish Community knows to be right. Because we remember our own story - it reminds us what it is to be voiceless.

This year, we have an opportunity to deliver the Voice – to vote Yes in the upcoming referendum, and bring about historic change for first Australians. But if we want it, we need to work for it.  And with the referendum around the corner, we have no time to waste.

That’s why Stand Up is launching Kol Halev (meaning “call of the heart”), and calling on the Jewish Community to raise our voices and campaign for “Yes” alongside first Australians.  

It’s about making sure that our community turns up and votes “Yes” on referendum day.

We’ll have a lot more to say soon about how you can get involved. Make sure to click the button below, and sign up for updates from Kol Halev.
