On October 14, 2023, a majority vote answered ‘no’ to “A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.” WACSSO joins education and community organisations in support of all those impacted by the ‘no’ vote following the referendum. Importantly, we ask now what? The introduction of an advisory body enshrined in the Constitution providing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a say on matters that impact them was presented to the Australian people as a step on the journey to reconciliation. While this option was not accepted, the result must not signal the end of this journey.
