The message and journey of the Uluru Statement towards Voice, Treaty and Truth –  a presentation by Thomas Mayor

Since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was formed in 2017, Thomas Mayor has travelled around the country to promote its vision of a better future for Indigenous Australians. He’s visited communities big and small, often with the Uluru Statement canvas rolled up in a tube under his arm.  Through the story of his own journey and interviews with many key people, Thomas taps into a deep sense of our shared humanity

The Uluru Statement is asking for a First Nations Voice to Parliament which would ensure that Parliament is better and more appropriately informed in its approach to indigenous affairs, policy and law making…it is not a big ask and long overdue!   
He needs the support of the wider Australian public. The momentum that is built through such a process has the potential to ensure that the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities are heard and their guidance and expertise is followed by governments in regards to Indigenous affairs. 
Please join us to hear Thomas’ story and to learn about the Uluru Statement campaign. This will only happen if the wider Australian community shows active support for a First Nation Voice – as a community we can help to make a difference!  Engagement with this campaign will also show wider support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
