The Moonee Valley Legal Service wholeheartedly supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the YES campaign for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament, and here’s why:

RECOGNITION: It’s time to recognise 65,000 years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture in Australia by listening the voices of our First Nations people, whose wisdom and experiences enrich our nation.

RECONCILIATION: This initiative is a crucial step towards healing and reconciling our nation’s history. Let’s build a better future together.

DIGNITY: Respect and dignity are the birthright of every Australian. Let’s ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices are heard in decisions that impact their lives and communities.

VOTE YES: Your vote is a vote for justice and equity. Let’s make history and create a more inclusive Australia.
