On the fourth anniversary of the Uluru Statement, the book ‘Everything You Need to Know about the Uluru Statement from the Heart’ has been released.
The book is written by Megan Davis and George Williams, two of Australia’s best-known constitutional experts, and includes how the Constitution was drafted, what the 1967 referendum achieved, and the lead-up and response to the Uluru Statement.
Importantly, it asks: What was the journey to this point? What do Australians need to know about the Uluru Statement from the Heart? And how can these reforms be achieved? The book also explains how the Uluru Statement offers change that will benefit the whole nation.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart was a clear and urgent call for reform to the community from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples asking for the establishment of a First Nations Voice to Parliament protected in the constitution and a process of agreement-making and truth-telling.
It is a vitally important book written for all Australians who have accepted the Uluru invitation and are walking with us in a journey of the Australian people for a better future.’
The book is available online at leading e-bookstores.
