I'm Voting YES with the LTSU!
Every Australian is being asked to vote on whether Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should have a say on the issues that affect their communities.
Our community, La Trobe Student Union, is organising for a strong YES vote so that we can move forward together!
Why is this important?
As union members, we believe that having a voice in issues that affect us is a fundamental requirement for strong communities and a respectful country.
We support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and, by extension, the Unions for Yes campaign for First Nations Constitutional recognition and a Voice to Parliament.
We believe that all Australians will benefit from hearing the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and sharing in First Nations contributions to our national identity.
