YES – if not now, when?

“If we don’t seize the moment now, then when?” This was a question posed by ultra-marathon runner Pat Farmer at the Sydney Opera House on August 22, where he arrived as part of Run for the Voice.

Farmer’s 14,400 kilometre run around Australia is raising awareness, support and engagement for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament.

On October 14 Australians will have their say in a referendum on whether to change the constitution to recognise First Nations People by establishing a Voice to Parliament. Farmer says, “It’s so important because it’s going to give opportunity for people to really have a say in their own destiny.” See https://voice.gov.au/
