Recognition 'will help to close the gap'

Date posted: 29 May 2013

Indigenous leader, Tanya Hosch, has outlined the practical and symbolic benefits expected to flow from constitutional recognition in a speech to acknowledge the National Sorry Day anniversary (Sunday 26 May).

Ms Hosch is Deputy Campaign Director for Recognise, a project to raise community awareness and support for constitutional change to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Australian Constitution.

In her speech, which also reflected on the history and significance of Sorry Day, Ms Hosch stated that recognition of the first Australians in the Constitution is ‘a great moment in history within our grasp' which will help close the Indigenous disadvantage gap.

Ms Hosch called on non-Indigenous Australians to help herald a new era of formal national unity by campaigning for recognition. To view the video of Ms Hosch's presentation, please see the links below.
