Let’s Talk…Referendum

The 1967 referendum did not end discrimination in Australia but instead opened a door for the Australian Government to make specific laws that applied to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples that could assist in addressing inequalities.

The recognition of inequalities and giving the Australian Government the power to address them gave the 1967 referendum longstanding significance for all Australians.

This National Reconciliation Week, we talk referendum and ask what will we do next to further reconciliation?
