Aboriginal Land Councils unite

Last modified date

Campaign Update: Saturday 17 June, 2023

Aboriginal Land Councils urge Australians to support the Voice

Last week we welcomed the signing of the Barunga Voice Declaration from the Northern Territory's four Aboriginal land councils: Northern, Central, Tiwi, and Anindilyakwa.  

It was a significant day in Barunga from hearing many of the 200 representatives from these land councils on the importance of this referendum and how it will bring forth positive changes within Indigenous communities.

To continue building on this extraordinary momentum, bringing the heart of this campaign away from politicians and into the hands of the community, we are holding nationwide events on July 2nd.
