Uluru Statement from the Heart

At Bambuddha Group, we are dedicated to social responsibility. Our goal is to promote equity and opportunity for all by emphasizing compassionate leadership. We have partnered with Winangar Guru, an Indigenous Australian consultancy, to show our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This includes advocating for constitutional recognition of a First Nations Voice.

As an organisation that values diversity, equity, and inclusion, we wholeheartedly support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the Yes Campaign. Our leadership is driven by kindness and a recognition of the vital role that Indigenous Australians play as the First People of this country. We are committed to enabling and empowering Indigenous communities to have a meaningful say in decisions that impact them through the Voice.

A First Nations Voice to Parliament protected by the Constitution is a key element of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

  1. After detailed consultation with the Referendum Working Group, Prime Minister Albanese announced the proposed referendum question on 23 March 2023.
  2. The Bill which will trigger a referendum is the Constitution Alteration (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice)  was tabled in federal parliament on On 31 May 2023.
  3. The Bill passed the House of Representatives and passed the Senate on 19 June 2023 after many hours of debate in both chambers, including an extended sitting of the Senate until 4am.
  4. The referendum (YES/NO VOTE) prepared by the National Indigenous Australians Agency and conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission, will be held sometime between October and December 2023.

The referendum question contained in the Bill is:

“A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice”.

A Voice to Parliament will give Indigenous communities a route to help inform policy and legal decisions that impact their lives. Giving people a say will lead to more effective results.

Embedding a Voice in the Constitution would recognise the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s history, but importantly would also mean that it can’t be shut down by successive Governments.

This is important because Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and bodies have called for voice for close to 100 years.
