Uluru Statement

YES whiteRed (1)

 

Allies for Uluru are thrilled to announce a panel of incredible speakers for our upcoming Understanding the Voice: Brisbane Town Hall event. We will be joined by Megan Davis, Dean Parkin and Aaron Fa'Aoso who together will speak about why constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples through a Voice to Parliament is a crucial step on the path to creating a better future. 

 

With the speakers’ strong ties to Country and their continued work in the state, this event presents an important opportunity for organisations to engage their Queensland peers and networks in the conversation and to build and strengthen support for Voice in the state.

What: Understanding the Voice: Brisbane Town Hall

When: Tuesday 22nd August, 6:00pm-7.30pm AEST

Where: State Library of Queensland, Cultural Precinct, Stanley Pl, South Brisbane and online
