An interview with Damian Griffis from First Peoples Disability Network
After weeks of speculation, the date of the Voice to Parliament referendum was announced this week by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
The referendum will happen on Saturday, 14 October 2023.
Inclusion Australia thinks everyone should be included in this important conversation. This includes having accessible information to understand what the referendum is and why it matters.
The day before the announcement, our team met with Damian Griffis, CEO of First People’s Disability Network for a helpful chat about the referendum and the Voice to Parliament.
Brooke Canham and William Ward-Boas asked Damian questions that will help you understand more about the referendum and why it matters to all Australians.
