Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the First Peoples of Australia and have lived here for more than 65,000 years. But Australia’s Constitution doesn’t recognise their existence nor unique status and connection to the land we live on. This is why later this year, we will have the opportunity to change our Constitution through a Referendum. Through this referendum, referred to as the Voice, all Australians will have a chance to recognise the First People’s rights, history and ongoing relationship with this land and to ensure they are consulted on laws and policies that affect them.
