The Australian Government has launched an information campaign to help Australians be informed about the upcoming Voice referendum, which will be held later this year.
The referendum is about whether to recognise the First Peoples of Australia in the Constitution by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
Factual resources have been developed to support all Australians with a source of trusted information to make an informed vote in the referendum.
The information campaign includes television and radio advertising nationally, as well as a range of stakeholder resources to support all communities with information.
The First Nations community toolkit includes information to share with your communities and networks. Translated in-language materials will continue to be added to the Voice.gov.au website over the coming weeks.
Actions you can take to help inform people
- Share the facts about the Voice referendum using the resources in the community toolkit. There are written, audio and visual materials to support information sharing.
- Keep an eye out for hard copy posters and factsheets being sent to stakeholders over coming weeks.
- Use the conversation guide to talk with your community about the facts.
- Encourage people to be ready for the Voice referendum and get informed at voice.gov.au.
