THE IMPORTANT ROLE of young people in the Voice to Parliament campaign has been demonstrated again with the Uluru Youth Dialogue releasing a new social media campaign called #RingYourRello.
#RingYourRello is a creative grassroots campaign driven by the vision of breaking down generational barriers when it comes to conversations about the Voice referendum. The aim of this campaign is to educate and influence through the voices of Aussies of all ages using social media, including Instagram and TikTok and other platforms.
The campaign will empower young people to have an open and respectful discussion with their relatives about the Voice to Parliament and upcoming referendum. We hope the conversations will build greater confidence in the friends and family of young people about the Voice to Parliament and how they will vote.
“The concept of it is a cross-generational conversation with, perhaps your grandparent or a parent; someone older than you from a different generation, different era. It’s having the conversation about the First Nations Voice to Parliament,” Uluru Youth Dialogue Co-Chair Allira Davis said at the campaign’s official launch in Sydney.
We know that young people are the biggest group of supporters when it comes to the Voice and want to see positive change in our lifetime. It is important that Australians are having conversations right across the country. We hope that #RingYourRello will help to educate via positivity, hope and presenting facts.
#RingYourRello aims to create a ripple effect of support for the Voice and a YES vote right across the country.
“Young people have a really important role to play in the conversation around the Voice and the referendum, and especially with our families and our friends, because a lot of them trust us to get information to them. So we can really break down some of those barriers that exist and explain to our family, our friends, why this referendum and a successful outcome matters to us as young people,” Youth Dialogue Co-Chair Bridget Cama said at the official launch.
As Australia gets closer to referendum day, the outcome relies on people from all walks of life sharing the facts about the Voice to Parliament, having conversations about the Voice with friends and family and accepting the invitation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
