"I felt really engaged and am leaving much more confident in having discussions about the Uluru Statement From The Heart. I will be recommending this training to my colleagues and social group."
"The training helped me sort through my thoughts and feelings about the Uluru Statement from the Heart."
"I thought the workshop was a really great and productive experience. It was great to discuss things in an open environment and I really felt like I walked away with a better idea on how to be an advocate in the future."
"I was very satisfied. The workshop was engaging, interactive and the facilitator Semara did an amazing job at making us think about our answers and the 'why's' behind everything we were learning."
"I felt the time was well used. Even though I knew a fair bit about the campaign and the statement and the processes involved, the training gave me tools I did not have, to help advocate further for this movement. I think it was well targeted to all knowledge levels."
Change is needed to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a say in the laws and policies that impact on them.
Australia has seen over two centuries of failed policies directed towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; policies created from government without enough engagement from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are directly affected by them.
These policies have often been formed from good intentions but they have not delivered better outcomes.
In 2008, the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments committed to achieving equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in health and life expectancy within a generation through the Closing the Gap strategy.The annual Closing the Gap report tracks progress against seven targets to bridge the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the rest of Australia. These targets are:
In February 2020, the Prime Minister reported that only two targets – early childhood education enrolment and Year 12 attainment – are on track to be met.
The Uluru Statement’s call for a Voice to a Parliament enshrined in the constitution provides a practical path forward to finally address the issues that governments alone have been unable to resolve.
A Voice to Parliament provides the foundation for better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They are the ones that have the best understanding of the challenges facing their families and communities. They know the strengths of their communities and what can be achieved when they are involved in designing programs and services meant for them.
A Voice to Parliament will empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, allowing them to take ownership and responsibility for the challenges that they face, and work constructively with governments from any political party to develop the laws and policies needed to Close the Gap.
