Youth for the Voice – U18 for Yes23: Young people’s Voice to Parliament Brisbane launch

Young people’s participation in the Voice referendum 2023

Youth for the Voice present U18 for Yes23

On 14th October 2023, Australians will have their say in a referendum about whether to change the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have called for members of the Voice to be chosen by First Nations peoples based on the wishes of local communities.

Embedding a Voice in the Constitution would recognise the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s history, but importantly would also mean that it can’t be shut down by successive Governments.

U18 will be holding a Brisbane launch event for young people with an interest in supporting the ‘yes’ option for the Voice. View the poster for more information.

Date: Tuesday, 1st October – 1pm

Venue: Parliament House, Brisbane
