Initiatives of Change: Our Uluru Response

Initiatives of Change logoInitiatives of Change Australia invite you to join with them in their event, Our Uluru Response – ‘Walking Together to support the Uluru Statement from the Heart.’ A special forum with guest speaker Thomas Mayor.

This important forum will mark the start of our journey to walk with First Nations People in truth telling and truth hearing, building respect and inclusivity in our country—’Our Uluru Response.’

Thomas Mayor is a Torres Strait Islander man born on Larrakia Country in Darwin, and a signatory of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. An activist, author and union offical, he was entrusted after the Uluru meeting to carry the sacred canvas on an 18-month journey around the country to garner support for a constitutionally enshrined First Nations voice, and a Makarrata Commission for truth-telling and agreement-making or treaties. His journey, he told the ABC, has given him hope that the Australian people would vote ‘yes’ in a Referendum for the Voice.

The evening’s events will include a Smoking ceremony, a welcome to country by local indigenous leaders and more.

Be there in person at Armagh or take part online.
