We must Listen to All Community Voices Before Taking Decisive Action.

It is concerning to see the push by the PM to have a referendum on the Indigenous Voice before broad and inclusive community deliberation has been completed.  

There is pressure to act quickly by some groups in the community; this risks either a failed referendum or people becoming frustrated when the implementation consequences become apparent.  

Many wise indigenous voices, including Tom Calma, Marcia Langton, Pat Turner and Linda Burney, have endorsed the need “to build consensus” before moving to Constitutional Recognition.  

Our community comprises many “voices” from many backgrounds – and they all deserve to be listened to.
