 We support a First Nations Voice to Parliament 

Belong Blue Mountains acknowledges and accepts the Uluru Statement from the Heart. We support the recognition of First Nations people in the Constitution and support the establishment of a First Nations Voice to Parliament and the Commonwealth Government, enshrined in the Constitution.  

We will continue to listen deeply and walk together with First Nations people to achieve a better future. 

The Belong Blue Mountains Board strongly support a YES vote in the upcoming referendum.
