Have your say on Indigenous Voice proposals

Posted: January 14th, 2021

The second stage of the Indigenous Voice to Parliament co-design process has been launched, inviting all Australians to provide their feedback and comments on the proposals.

The Interim Report to the Australian Government, a discussion paper and other resources are now available online. Community consultations will be held over the next four months, people can participate via survey which will remain open for this period, or provide a submission by 31 March 2021.

Minister Wyatt said: “The Government is particularly interested in ensuring that any Voice structure in its final form leads to a greater say for Indigenous Australians on matters that affect them and real changes on the ground. It will also ensure there is a shared responsibility for dealing with these matters – not only with jurisdictions but with Indigenous Australians as well.”
