Busting myths about the Voice

Busting myths about the Voice

Why Yes

Voting Yes will provide an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to be heard by government, so that we can achieve better health, education and wellbeing outcomes for Indigenous people.

Australia’s constitution doesn’t recognise Indigenous people.

The vote is responding to the requests of Indigenous Elders who met in 2017 and called for change.

The Voice provides an opportunity to formally recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, and to provide information and advice direct to government in relation to laws and policies that affect them.

The Case for Yes


VFR is not affiliated with any party or other campaign. We support the campaign in favour of the referendum as a grassroots initiative of staff and students in the education sector.

Free Voice course

A free microcredential course on the Indigenous Voice to Parliament has been developed by Macquarie University and is a great way to understand the proposed Voice in greater detail. The course is available online and takes only 1-2 hours. You can register for the course online now.
