At the Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education we are passionate about reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, believing real action would be a liberating step for all Australians. This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week from 27 May to 3 June 2021 is - “More than a word. Reconciliation takes action”.
To mark this special week, we invite you to take action by writing to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and asking him to support a referendum to enshrine a First Nations Voice to Parliament in the Australian Constitution.
A First Nations Voice to Parliament is one of 3 fundamental pillars of the First Nations-led ‘Uluru Statement from the Heart’. A Voice to Parliament would deliver practical and meaningful constitutional recognition and would allow Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to have a say on policies and laws that impact on them.
Use our template email to reach out to Scott Morrison and ask him to support a First Nations Voice to Parliament. You can maximise your impact by using your own words and spreading the link to this page on your social media pages using #TimeForAVoice. Thank you very much for your support.
