Let’s come together for ‘Yes’

It was wonderful to see so many of you join us recently for the official launch of our ‘Yes’ campaign and in support of a First Nations Voice to Parliament.  

We were all deeply moved to hear the stories of some of our First Nations Finance Workers Committee members, and to feel the overwhelming support from all of you for this campaign.   

If you missed the event, you can watch a recording here 

If we want to secure a strong ‘Yes’ vote in October (when we expect the referendum to take place), we’ll need to have as many conversations as possible – so talk to your family, friends and colleagues and encourage them to vote ‘Yes’ for this important and historic change to our Constitution.   

To support you in having these discussions, we’ll be creating a campaign kit with various resources including talking points, guides on managing challenging conversations, information about the referendum and more.   

Please register your interest for a campaign kit and we’ll deliver this to you (digitally) soon so you can start having conversations and raising awareness about this vital issue.

On Sunday 2 July, unions and communities will be coming together in support of a ‘Yes’ vote at events taking place right across our nation.   

Not only will this be a day of community, family fun and culture (with food, music and great entertainment), it’s also a great opportunity for us to put on a strong show of solidarity and support for this campaign and to get people to sit up and take notice. You can register to attend your local event on our website.   

NAIDOC Week will soon take place from Sunday 2 July to Sunday 9 July.  

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is For our Elders. Our Elders have and continue to play an important role in our communities and we pay our respects to Elders past and emerging.  

Find out more about NAIDOC Week or take part in local events in celebration.
