Week of Action for the Voice referendum

20 February, 2023

NSWALC is encouraging local Aboriginal communities in NSW to read and listen to information being provided about the Voice referendum during the Week of Action, which started on Saturday.

NSWALC believes the Voice to Parliament will help ensure the voices of Aboriginal people are heard loud and clear. We support a Constitutionally enshrined First Nations Voice to Parliament and a Makarrata (truth-telling) Commission as the best step forward for this country.

NSWALC supports a Voice that aligns with our principles, the full list of principles can be accessed here.

This year’s referendum will create an environment for a Voice. The referendum is required because for any Voice to Parliament or a Voice to work, there has to be an amendment to the Constitution to include provisions to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s right to self-determination. To help navigate the referendum process, NSWALC created a factsheet.

NSWALC will continue to update the Land Rights Network in NSW about the Voice referendum.
