YMAC congratulates Reconciliation WA and Reconciliation Australia on a fantastic and timely National Reconciliation Week Virtual Breakfast today.
Following YMAC’s endorsement of the “yes” vote in relation to the referendum question on an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice, the breakfast event highlighted the vital importance of an Aboriginal Voice to Parliament.
The event was broadcast live from Boola Bardip WA Museum to participants across the State, in the lead-up to National Reconciliation Week from 27 May until 3 June. YMAC’s staff joined thousands of viewers across Western Australia from its head office in Perth and regional offices in Carnarvon, Hedland, Broome and Geraldton.
This year’s theme – “Be a voice for generations” – is very fitting in this referendum year. After a Welcome to Country from Aunty Robyn Collard, the event line-up included a mix of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal leaders speaking of their commitment to reconciliation and presenting compelling reasons to vote “yes” in the referendum later this year.
