A PRO-Voice to Parliament event later this month at Flinders Hotel sold out in four days so organisers have added a second session.
Voice to Parliament: A Discussion will be held from 11am-1pm Sunday 30 July after the sellout session on the Saturday.
Speakers at both sessions will be Professor Dr Marcia Langton AO, Rachel Perkins and Tony Nutt AO.
They will speak for about one hour all-up before taking questions from the audience for about 30 minutes.
Co-organisers are peninsula-based arts producer Sally Baillieu and Julie Kantor, founding director of Annamila First Nations Foundation, set up to foster “a more socially just Australia, especially in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people”.
Event moderator will be Corrie Perkin, journalist, writer and director of Sorrento Writers Festival.
Baillieu said attendees would hear “why the Voice is needed and how it potentially will function as well as about misinformation being spread”.
Langton is an anthropologist, geographer and academic as well as academic administrator at the University of Melbourne.
Perkins is a film director and co-chair of Australians for Indigenous Constitutional Recognition (AICR), the lead organising and fundraising vehicle of the Yes vote.
Tony Nutt was chief of staff to former prime minister John Howard and a long-time federal director of the Liberal Party. He is on the AICR board and is a director of Telstra.
Nutt said he had long been a supporter of Indigenous constitutional recognition and backed the proposed Constitution preamble at the 1999 referendum.
