Echuca for Yes
Goulburn Valley for Yes
A warm welcome to the Echuca Moama for Yes group.
We are a community group of people from the electorate of Nicholls who are working together to deliver a successful YES outcome at the Voice referendum in late 2023.
We are campaigning with respect and hope for a better future for all Australians. Our aim is to move forward together as united team, community and society.
Later this year we will vote in the first Referendum in 24 years.
We will have to say YES or NO to:
“A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
Do you approve of this proposed alteration?
Here are some of the best resources that explain where the call for a Voice to Parliament comes from and why the request is being put to the Australian people and not Parliament.
