YMAC holds the position that Constitutional recognition must be sought alongside the practical establishment and legislating of a First Nations’ ‘Voice to Parliament’; as, without this, it is feared past failed attempts of creating similar advisory bodies will be repeated.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart was an invitation from our First Nations peoples for all Australians to join them on a road to a better future, together. The Referendum Council for the Uluru Statement has launched a new campaign in support of a First Nations’ ‘Voice to Parliament’ to be enshrined in our Constitution.
The campaign invites everyone to use their voice to join the call to the Australian Government, and send a clear message to local, state and federal representatives, of their support for the ‘Uluru Statement from the Heart’.
To support these efforts, the Referendum Council for the Uluru Statement has created a resource to help you prepare when writing to Federal Members of Parliament, available here.

YMAC accepts the invitation contained in the Uluru Statement from the Heart and will continue to walk together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.
