YMAC’s position on the Voice

YMAC has officially endorsed the “yes” vote in relation to the referendum question on an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.

It follows YMAC’s Board and Yamatji and Pilbara Regional Committee members meeting with Thomas Mayo, from the Federal Government’s Referendum Working Group and Referendum Engagement Groups, to discuss details of the referendum.

YMAC previously committed to supporting the Uluru Statement from the Heart, which called for a Voice to Parliament as one of its actions.

Alongside the YES23 campaign, YMAC will be visiting the regions to talk about the Yes vote and what it means for you. To find out more about our Referendum Roadshow, click here.
