The Voice to Parliament – Ember Connect statement

“The Board and Management of Ember Connect wholeheartedly support an Indigenous Voice enshrined in the Constitution and recognise the significance of its passage as being a fundamental step towards implementing the Uluru Statement of the Heart in full, and in our collective journey to create a more just and equitable future for all Australians.

We believe that meaningful and lasting change requires a deep understanding of the historical and ongoing factors that contribute to social injustice and the first step in confronting those issues is enshrining an Indigenous Voice in the Constitution. A positive outcome to the referendum will help build momentum towards our fundamental goal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women leading a life of choice, in a society where they are valued.

We respect and acknowledge that this is a personal journey for each Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person.”

Ember Connect wishes to acknowledge the many Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and we honour their deep continuing connection to land, sky, waterways and community.

We pay our respects to our Elders past, present and emerging who illuminate our journey to truth-telling, culture and conservation, which remains stronger than ever.
