When our Constitution was first drafted, it made no mention of the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first Australians. They were effectively excluded from our founding document of law.

More than 100 years on, our Constitution still doesn't recognise our first Australians. We need to fix this.

Recognition would help to safeguard something unique and precious about our country -- the fact that we are home to the oldest continuing cultures anywhere on the planet.

Help us unite Australia by recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the constitution.

Sign this pledge to say: Yes! I support Constitutional recognition for all Australians.

One of the most important projects I have seen yet.
Thankyou so much for the opportunity to make my voice heard as it was NOT accepted when I first spoke out in 1968!
I loved Australia so much, except for this one thing.
Wonderful to hope it may be put right at last - and lead to a lasting respect for a wonderfully civilised people.
