Australia: Pax Christi Australia presents a seminar on the establishment of a 'First Nations Voice' in the Australian constitution

 

20/1/19 - “We wholeheartedly support the Uluru Statement from the Heart (May 2017), which calls for the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ in the Australian Constitution and for recognition, reconciliation, truth-telling and treaty between governments, the people of Australia and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.” (Grail members, Sydney)

Join Pax Christi Australia for a seminar on Saturday, 23 February 2019 to learn how far these matters have been moved forward by governments since May 2017 and what issues and concerns are holding back progress.
