Yes to Parliament

AWMA Statement of Support for a Voice to Parliament

Australian Women in Music Awards (AWMA) acknowledges the importance of working with First Nations people to develop and maintain authentic, respectful partnerships.

AWMA especially acknowledges the role of First Nations women in the Australian music industry and the important voice that they have had in the past and continue to have today as well as in shaping the nation’s future.

AWMA also acknowledge past injustices and harm caused to First Nations people as a result of the impact of colonisation.

We stand in solidarity with First Nations people and proudly support the ‘YES’ campaign to amend the Constitution to ensure that First Nations voices are heard loudly and clearly on all matters that affect them.

This statement reaffirms our ongoing commitment to justice, healing and reconciliation in acknowledging the rightful place of First Nations people in this country.
