During National Reconciliation Week 2021, Professionals Australia is proud to endorse the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an invitation to the Australian people from First Nations to “walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.”
The statement calls for a First Nations Voice to be enshrined in our Constitution to enable First Nations’ views to be expressed to parliament and government. It also calls for a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations (Treaty), and truth-telling about our history (Truth).
Voice, Treaty and Truth provide a clear pathway to build a relationship between First Nations and the Australian nation, based on justice and self-determination where Indigenous cultures and peoples can flourish. Voice, Treaty and Truth will empower First Nations people to hold their rightful place in Australia and enable us to move forward together.
