On Saturday 14 October, we will be voting on the Voice to Parliament in a historic referendum.
PIAC is offering information sessions to help people understand the proposal for a First Nations Voice to parliament and answer questions before we vote.
The sessions are led by PIAC lawyers, including a First Nations lawyer, explaining the Voice Referendum from legal, historical, and very personal perspectives. They also explain why PIAC is supporting Yes!
Each session includes time for questions from participants and an opportunity for respectful discussion.

We want to reach as many undecided people as possible before voting day so please forward this information to anyone you know who might be interested.
