On 14 October, Australians will vote on whether or not to enshrine a First Nations Voice to Parliament in the Constitution. The upcoming referendum is a landmark moment in our country's history, and its result will have major impacts not only for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, but for all Australians.
So, what does the referendum mean? What does a First Nations Voice aim to achieve, why is it important and how will it affect multicultural communities?
All these questions and more will be answered at our forum on Monday, 25 September. The event will involve an in-depth panel discussion about the referendum and the importance of recognising First Peoples in the Constitution, followed by an audience Q&A.
Joining us on the panel will be special guests:
