Online and the Sir Stanley Burbury Lecture Theatre, Dobson Road, Sandy Bay, TAS 7004Summary:
Explore the Voice to Parliament Referendum with our commentators and experts at this free event.
The national movement toward truth-telling and treaty with our First Nations is a tribute to the work of generations who fought for justice and equality in Australia. We continue to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation for the generations to come. The public debate on a Voice to Parliament and the forthcoming referendum is an opportunity for the next generation to take their place in this ongoing movement for positive change and to bravely reimagine a better Australia.
So what does our future look like after the Voice to Parliament Referendum? How can we best support the creation of a more just Australia for all of us?
Join emerging leaders as they explore visions and aspirations for our collective future.
