Professor Bronwyn Fredericks, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Engagement) at The University of Queensland, has urged Australian organisations, institutions and individuals to make submissions to the Federal Government’s Indigenous Voice Discussion Paper and to embrace the gift of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
Fredericks was guest at Croakey’s rotational Twitter account @WePublicHealth last week, tweeting about the Uluru Statement, constitutional enshrinement of an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, and general public health issues including #COVID-19.
She alerted followers to support they can tap into from the Uluru Statement Dialogue and UNSW Indigenous Law Centre, for pledging support to the Uluru Statement and making a submission on the Indigenous Voice proposal.
Her fantastic stint at @WePublicHealth coincided with Queensland’s snap COVID-19 lockdown, the extension of the Indigenous Voice submissions deadline to 30 April and took us over the Easter long weekend to Minjerribah, North Stradbroke Island.
Here’s a selection of her tweets and conversations and links to many excellent resources below.
