VACCA CEO Muriel Bamblett has been appointed a member of the official Indigenous Voice Referendum Engagement Group, alongside other prominent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives nationwide.
As a representative of the Coalition of peaks and CEO of VACCA, Muriel Bamblett will be part of the Engagement group providing input and consultation to inform communication, awareness and support for community.
"I am honoured to be part of this monumental process in Australia's History, and for our people; but I am especially proud to be able to make sure our children have a voice in their futures," Ms Bamblett said.
The group is made up of representatives from land councils, local governments and community controlled organisations. It will provide support to the Referendum working group who are tasked with advising government on delivering a successful referendum.
Muriel has been a strong campaigner for the inclusion of an Aboriginal voice in parliament for decades.
Her role as CEO of VACCA has always been to represent the voice of children and unheard members of the community especially carers and families experiencing family violence, and now as part of the referendum working group, a voice for Aboriginal Victoria.
