Canberra Walk for Yes

Join supporters in Canberra, and around Australia on Sunday 17 September and Walk for Yes.

In a matter of weeks you will have the chance to be part of something truly important. As a nation we will head to the polls and vote in a referendum that asks you to listen to Indigenous Australians, recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture, and protect their voices in Australia’s 122 year old constitution.

Canberra, this is our time to show the country just how positive and unifying this moment is. Bring your friends and family. Join us as we walk for YES.

Meet at the grounds North West of the National Library by Lake Burley Griffin at 11am on Sunday the 17th of September. The event will conclude at 1pm at Parliament House.

We will receive a Welcome to Country from Ngunnawal Elder Aunty Violet. This will be followed by speeches from Indigenous Elders and Community leaders both at the National Library and Parliament.

Parking will be limited so arrive early, catch a cab/uber, use public transport, or walk/cycle.

Wear your Yes23 merch, bring water, and bring family friendly banners and signs for the walk.

RSVP to here to keep up to date with the latest event details.
