Voice. Treaty. Truth - Learn more

‘Voice. Treaty. Truth’ are words you’ll be seeing and hearing more of in the coming months and are three important conversations this country must engage in.

It has been confirmed as a nation will be asked to vote in a referendum about ‘Voice’ on Sat 14th October.

In a referendum, everyone over the age of 18 and enrolled to vote will be asked to go to the polling booths. We will be asked a question, and we will need to vote either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

When it comes to the Voice referendum, the question being asked is:

“A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.

Do you approve this proposed alteration?”

Essentially we’ll be asked whether we support changing the constitution to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through the establishment of a voice to inform government and parliamentary decisions.

As always, we encourage you to educate yourself and wear your values.







There are a lot of great resources around to learn more about Voice, Treaty and Truth.

    Hi, my daughter has ‘borrowed’ my cap! I am looking to replace it but would really like one that says ‘yes’. Also looking for ‘yes’ badge. Do you have any? Getting worried the no campaign has so much fear and if you don’t know vote no and think the more people wearing a badge /hat (easier for at work, or older people to wear than t shirt?) and the more people see lots of ‘yes’ and more conversations we can start as to why voting yes is not scary, and will help close the gap the better. Thanks
