Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA stands in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in their campaigns for justice and equality.

Together with the Australian union movement, we support the Voice to Parliament for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

A Voice to Parliament is one of the key reforms Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have called for through the Uluru Statement from the Heart. It will give First Nations peoples the right to have a say over laws that affect them and, because it’s enshrined in the constitution, it can’t be stripped away by future governments.

We know that organised movements of people make change possible. Let’s bring the country together by connecting all Australians to 65,000 years of continuous Indigenous culture.

Join with us in voting ‘YES’. Sign the pledge today!

What is the Voice to Parliament?

Launch of Unions for Yes at Unions NSW in June, 2023.

In May 2017, over 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates gathered at Uluru to sign the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

It called for three key reforms: Truth-Telling, Treaty and Voice.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart asks Australians to walk together to build a better future by establishing a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Constitution, and the establishment of a Makarrata Commission for the purpose of treaty-making and truth-telling.
