The First Nations Convention at Uluru appointed the Uluru Position Working Group to carry the Uluru Statement forward on its journey. Things are moving quickly, and it is urgent that all Australians that support the statement make their voices heard.
On 30 June, the Referendum Council will report to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition. Neither the Uluru Statement nor the Referendum Council report will bind the government. That is why it is so important that you tell them your thoughts.
Who is the Uluru Position Working Group?
The Uluru Position Working Group was established at the Uluru Convention to take the reforms forward, to create a people’s movement in support of the reforms, and to negotiate with the government and parliament to progress them.
The Working Group consists of a male and female representative from each of the Regional Dialogues, two Aboriginal youth representatives and one Torres Strait Islander youth representative.
What happens after the Referendum Council reports on 30 June?
After the Referendum Council reports on 30 June to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, there is no guarantee that the government will take any further steps to achieve the reforms set out in the Uluru Statement or the Referendum Council’s report.
The Uluru Position Working Party’s job is to create a people’s movement supporting the reforms to ensure that progress is made.
