On Saturday 14 October 2023, Australians will vote in a historic referendum to decide whether to change the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament.
Christian Media & Arts Australia (CMAA) has partnered with Better Balanced Futures – representing the combined Faith Communities of Australia – to present respectful interviews representing both the “yes” and “no” perspectives in order for you to add to your other research in making an informed voting decision.
Below, Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price represents the “no” case, while Noel Pearson represents the “yes” case. These interviews, conducted by Dwayne Jeffries, include issues requested to be raised by leaders of the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu communities. Each community has been supplied with transcripts and recordings, which you will also find below.
