Through our partnership with the Allies for Uluru, Life Without Barriers is collaborating with a range of other not-for-profits to offer a special Town Hall event about the Voice to Parliament for our staff, carers, family and friends and extended community.  The ‘Understanding the Voice’ Community Town Hall will be held on Wednesday, 14th June, from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST, and everyone is invited.

This is a chance for the community to come together, learn, and engage in a constructive conversation about the Voice Referendum and its impact.

The Voice is a key reform in the Uluru Statement from the Heart which asks all Australians to recognise the rightful place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in their own country by establishing and enshrining a First Nations Voice in the Constitution.

Hear renowned Arrernte and Kalkadoon director, writer and producer Rachel Perkins talk about why constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a Voice to Parliament is a crucial step on the path to creating a better future.

This is an opportunity to ask questions, share feedback and learn about ways to engage in your local communities.

Claire Robbs, Life Without Barriers Chief Executive, encourages everyone to join the Town Hall and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to get informed ahead of the referendum later this year.

"If you're unsure about the Voice to Parliament, if you have found the media coverage confusing or if you just need more information, this is a great forum to join. I highly recommend you register and encourage the people around you to do so as well – it is free and open to everyone."

RSVP here.
