From the Heart Week of Action

We are at a critical time in our history and YOU can make a difference. Join us in a Week of Action for the next step in the journey of recognition for Australian First Nations peoples in a voice on constitutional change.

From the Heart is the education project created to show Australians that an Indigenous Voice to Parliament enshrined in the constitution as called for by the Uluru Statement from the Heart is fair, is practical, and that it is time that we make this change in the interests of our shared future.

From the Heart is starting 2021 with a ‘Week of Action: The Time is Now’ from the 25th to the 31st of January to respond to the Government’s release of its Indigenous Voice Interim Co-Design Report for public consultation.

The Week of Action (WoA) aims to encourage large numbers of individuals and organisations to make submissions in support of From the Heart’s position. This is people power in action!

During the Week of Action (WoA), From the Heart has scheduled a series of daily #WoA activities on social media to raise public awareness about the consultation process. Guidelines and supporting resources are available on From the Heart’s website to help facilitate your submissions to the Government – they don’t need to be long winded documents and can be as simple as a few key points.

From the Heart also has a digital canvas for people to easily sign. The digital canvas gives people the opportunity to ‘sign their support’ for the Uluru Statement, in a similar way to how the original Uluru Statement was signed. It is preferable to do both – sign the digital canvas and make a submission – as the digital canvas is not connected to the government’s consultation process.

Find updates on From the Heart and participate in the #WoA activities by following the campaign on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
