26 Jul Noel Pearson : Constitutional Recognition through a Voice
Later this year, all Australians will have the opportunity to say Yes to the recognition of the First Peoples of Australia through a Voice.
Noel Pearson, lawyer and leading advocate for the Voice is visiting Gladstone to meet with the local community, and to talk about this important historical moment and the opportunity it presents to improve outcomes for Indigenous people, and all Australians. This is a great chance to have an informal chat with Noel over a BBQ.
Noel Pearson comes from the Guugu Yimidhirr community of Hope Vale on south eastern Cape York Peninsula. Mr Pearson is a lawyer and Founder of Cape York Partnership and Good to Great Schools Australia. Mr Pearson also co-founded the Cape York Land Council and helped to establish Apunipima Health Council, Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation and Indigenous Enterprise Partnerships. Mr Pearson served as a member of the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Indigenous Australians and the Referendum Council.
