RAP Organisations Support Voice

On 2 July 2023 more than 70 leading organisations with Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) signed on to a statement in support of a Voice to Parliament.

The statement was published in the Brisbane Sunday Mail and the Perth Sunday Times.

Since publication, more RAP organisations have signed. There are now more than 150 RAP organisations on the list below.

These leading organisations represent just a fraction of the hundreds of RAP organisations supporting the Voice through educating their stakeholders about the referendum and reflecting on their own governance.

Voice referendum
We support Yes

As members of a network of 2,700 organisations with Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) impacting 4 million Australians each day, our RAP commitments demonstrate our unwavering support of a reconciled future for our nation.

We come from a diverse range of sectors and work in every state and territory across this continent. We have been on the journey of reconciliation for many years.

Our organisations are stronger because we have listened to the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Recognition and voice have been at the heart of the reconciliation movement for decades.

Our organisations have accepted the invitation in the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

We committed to the principles of voice, treaty, and truth well before 2023. That commitment remains strong and will endure.

Reconciliation is founded on respectful relationships. We urge all Australians to engage thoughtfully and respectfully as they educate themselves and others about this important opportunity.

Together, our organisations support a Voice to Parliament and a “yes” vote in the Referendum.

We invite all Australians to join us as we take this step to make our nation a stronger, fairer, better place for all.
