The Illawarra Centre for Enablement (ICfE) proudly announces it’s Finished & Unfinished Business 2020 series to resolve in the Illawarra, issues of national significance through public expert panel discussions involving the community. Leading the series, ICfE proudly introduces an extraordinary Indigenous Expert Panel to discuss – Substantive Constitutional Recognition of First Nations
The Expert Indigenous Panel will explore why is a constitutionally enshrined Voice important to recognition, treaty-making and truth-telling? Is the Government’s policy of co-design to develop an Indigenous Voice enabling long-lasting substantial and enduring change for First Nations?
To discuss the status of an enshrined constitutional voice for Australia’s Indigenous People, Indigenous leaders from the Northern Territory, Queensland and Sydney will be on this Panel. Panellists, Thomas Mayor, Teela Reid; Charline Emzin-Boyd will be joined by Marcia Ella-Duncan from the Co-Design Group appointed by the Morrison Government. Local Elder Richard Davis, Chair of the Illawarra Aboriginal Corporation is also on the Panel. They will share their experiences, insights and answer your questions on key issues related to Indigenous Australians having a Voice in Parliament.
