Yes campaign community events bonanza rolls on

Community events and forums supporting a Yes vote will continue to ramp-up throughout the rest of this month with over 150 opportunities for Australians to get educated and involved in the campaign.

Everyday Australians can connect with the campaign through dozens of events in all states and territories, including stalls at shopping centres, training sessions for volunteers, public lectures, townhall meetings and community forums.

These 150-plus events come off the back of the over 30 community events held last Sunday where over 20 000 Australians showed their support for the Yes movement across the country.

Some of the upcoming events in July include:

• A family-friendly BBQ for Yes in Burswood
• Pat Farmer’s run through Townsville
• A community forum on the Sunshine Coast with Thomas Mayo and Jade Ritchie
• Kitchen table conversations in Dungog
• Film night and discussion with the Yes 23 Sutherland Shire supporter group
• Public lecture at Federation University featuring Noel Pearson
• Stalls at the Bellingen community markets
• A community information session in Northern Tasmania.

Yes23 Campaign Director Dean Parkin said community events and forums were great opportunities for Australians to gain valuable information about the referendum and get involved in the conversation.

“We have already seen strong community support and engagement for our campaign to date, but we will be rampingup efforts to reach even more Australians between now and referendum day,” Mr Parkin said.

“Our army of volunteers will be out every day on the ground in communities – talking to people, doorknocking, handing out Yes pamphlets at shopping centres and speaking at local information sessions.

“This is all about engaging with people and continuing to build community support for the referendum which will deliver better outcomes for Indigenous Australians across areas including housing, jobs, health, and education.

“Australians should expect to see a lot more from our campaign between now and referendum day, with endless opportunities for people to get involved and learn about why supporting a Voice to Parliament will lead to better outcomes on the ground.

“All around the country, from the Sunshine Coast to Launceston to Bellingen we want people to come along to an event, join the conversation and be part of this opportunity to move Australia forward.”
