Celebrating and learning about shared Australian histories, culture and achievements ahead of the Voice referendum.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) provides an opportunity to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament
In late 2023, Australians will have their say in a referendum about whether to change the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
The Voice would be an independent and permanent advisory body. It would give advice to the Australian Parliament and Government on matters that affect the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Voice to Parliament e-signature
Reconciliation is at the heart of the UNSW Indigenous Strategy 2018–2025 and the UNSW ethos of having a positive impact on the world around us. Earlier this year UNSW reaffirmed its support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart, including its call for a First Nations Voice to Parliament.
A new email signature confirming UNSW's support for a First Nations Voice to Parliament has been developed. Show your support now and download the Voice to Parliament e-signature from the UNSW Brand Hub.
National Reconciliation Week at UNSW
UNSW Law & Justice will mark National Reconciliation Week by creating a wall of words of support to our Indigenous community. This is planned to fill the main notice board on the ground floor in the Law & Justice building. The theme this year is 'Be a Voice for Generations', so come down to lower campus and show your support.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
