THE Southern Women’s Action Network (SWAN) is holding a public forum to counter “misinformation” about the upcoming Voice to Parliament referendum.
What is the VOICE referendum? – A Community discussion will be held from 7pm on Thursday 20 July at Mount Eliza Community Hall.
Guest speaker will be lawyer, writer and commentator Teela Reid, a Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman.
“We hope people will come along to this public forum and hear the facts then make up their own minds about this important referendum,” SWAN Facilitator Erica Churchill said.
She said Reid would focus on “properly informing people, irrespective of whether they are considering voting Yes or No, so they can make an informed decision”.
“Many people may have seen Teela Reid on national TV, so this is a special chance to meet her and ask her questions about the First Nations Voice to Parliament in a safe and respectful environment,” Reid said.
