This week, we're launching a Together, Yes video series we think you'll love.

 

We sat down with a whole range of people across the Australian community to find out why they support an Indigenous Voice to parliament, and why it was so important for them to step up as Conversation Host, just as you have.

 

We'll be rolling these interviews out over the next few weeks. First up, we have Supriya Singh and Pat Furze

WATCH Why I'm voting Yes: Supriya's story

 

Supriya came to Australia as a refugee from India. In this short clip, she outlines why she believes it's time to say YES to constitutional recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

WATCH Why I'm voting Yes: Pat's story

 

 

Pat is a publication from regional Victoria. In his line of work, he meets all kinds of people and plans to have as many conversations as possible about the 2023 referendum, and why he will be voting YES.

Share these videos with your networks!

Pat and Supriya's stories are available now via togetheryes.com.au and our brand-new YouTube Channel. You'll also see them pop up on your Instagram and Facebook feed in
the coming days.

Share, like, tag a mate in the comments — and help us inspire more people to become a Conversation Host!
