Later this year, there will be a referendum to create a Voice to Parliament for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. Just like a federal election, all Australian citizens aged 18 and over must vote.
Federal Member for Dunkley, Peta Murphy MP is presenting at information sessions in the Frankston area about the 2023 referendum.
These free community sessions provide an opportunity for locals to hear more about the referendum process and to ask questions they might have about the Voice to Parliament.
There are two information sessions later this month.
The first session will be held on Monday 28th of August at McClelland College, 31 Belar Avenue, Frankston (in the Information Commons). This session will run from 5.30 to 6.30pm.
The second session will be held on Thursday 31st of August in the Performing Arts Centre at Frankston High School, 97 Foot Street, Frankston. This session will run from 6 to 7pm.
Quotes attributable to Federal Member for Dunkley, Peta Murphy:
“The Voice to Parliament referendum will be a significant historical event, so it is important that the community is equipped with accurate information before we vote. That’s what these sessions are about.”
“Across the community, locals are coming together to learn about the referendum to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a Voice. If you have questions, please come along.”
