Anti-Poverty Week Supporting Voice, Treaty, Truth

Support for the Voice in our Constitution 

Anti-Poverty Week accepts the invitation to walk with our First Nations brothers and sisters in seeking a Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Constitution.  Long overdue, it’s simply the right thing to do.  It’s also the smart thing to do, as we can’t work together to tackle their poverty without their voice.

As Catherine Liddle, CEO of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s peak, SNAICC, has said “When you look at all the investigations …as a result of the despair that we see in our communities, they all point to poverty – and that poverty absolutely is rooted in a lack of self-determination.”
