On the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 referendum, the Uluru Statement from the Heart called for Australians to stand for real change. Join two of its authors for an urgent discussion about the future of Indigenous rights.
In 2017, the Uluru Statement from the Heart was issued as an invitation to all Australians to walk with First Nations people and compel politicians to make real change. Made through historic consensus of Indigenous leaders, the statement called for Voice, Treaty, Truth: a constitutionally enshrined First Nations Voice to Parliament and a Makarrata Commission to supervise agreement-making and truth telling.
Four years on, the Uluru Statement from the Heart has been awarded the Sydney Peace Prize, which recognises global voices that promote peace, justice, and nonviolence. Megan Davis and Pat Anderson are two of the principle architects of the groundbreaking document. How was it created? What work still needs to be done to see it realised? And how can we keep advocating for Indigenous rights, and fighting for justice?
