A conversation with the campaign director of YES23 Mr. Dean Parkin

A Juster(ER) Generation is a podcast series from the Edmund Rice Centre about conversations that matter. In this episode, Campaign Director of Yes23 Mr. Dean Parkin talked about his life before the YES campaign and why he got involved with the campaign. Dean also discussed the importance of The Uluru Statement from the Heart as an invitation for all Australians and took the opportunity to debunk some of the myths about the Statement and what the proposal for a Voice to Parliament enshrined in Australia’s constitution is about.
