How can I contribute? 

History shows us that referenda can only happen and be successful with the support of ordinary Australians. You can make a difference to ensuring that constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples stays on the political agenda. There are a number of things you can do:

  • Pass it on: Have a chat with your family and friends about constitutional recognition and the possibility of a referendum. While it is an easy thing to do, this is one of the most valuable steps you can take because it allows more people to join the conversation about constitutional recognition.
  • Sign Up: Register your support for constitutional recognition on the Recognise website at www.recognise.org.au. Recognise is the part of Reconciliation Australia, which is leading the campaign on constitutional recognition.
  • Spread the word: Reach out to your local community and raise awareness about constitutional recognition. You can share the Ready 4 Recognition information pack with groups in your community or organise your own community event focused on constitutional recognition. You can download a copy of this information pack or view it online on our website at www.ready4recognition.weblogs.anu.edu.au.
  • Speak Up: Write to your local member of Parliament and let them know you care about constitutional recognition.
  • Stay informed: Keep up-to-date with the progress of constitutional recognition as it develops at the political level so that when the issue is put to referendum you can make an informed vote.
