A conversation with Professor Megan Davis and Pat Anderson AO
Our Voices from the Heart
Over 2016 and 2017 First Nations people participated in a process for constitutional recognition, the first of its kind in Australian history. The Regional Dialogues and the National Constitutional Convention at Uluru in May 2017 led to the advocacy for recognition through a Voice.
This was expressed to the nation through a one page invitation to the Australian people known as the Uluṟu Statement from the Heart. The idea for better participation in the democratic life of the state, especially the Federal Parliament, is not a new one. Hear Pat Anderson and Megan Davis speak about the dialogue process and the proposal for a constitutionally enshrined Voice to Parliament.
