Like all other advocacy groups around the country the Women’s Reconciliation Network took a quantum leap when on 21st May 2022, Anthony Albanese Prime Minister Elect promised that a Referendum on the establishment of a First Nations Voice in the Australian Constitution would be held in the first term of his Labor Government.
As our Indigenous leadership From the Heart says: Campaigning for a referendum on constitutional recognition for a First Nations Voice to Parliament ‘now has a destination’
