A better way

The Albanese government proposed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice in the Australian Constitution is the wrong way to recognise Aboriginal people.

Recognise a Better Way understands there is much to do in Aboriginal Australia. It has a three-point positive plan to help those in need.

Real solutions

Poverty, disadvantage and despair is not caused by lack of a voice. It’s caused by lack of economic participation. Recognising a better way means recognising economic participation is the only way to close the gap and that every government policy and initiative should be obsessively focussed on these outcomes.

Official Paper

Whose truth?

This is the last of three papers which aim to explain the Committee’s official position on a national Voice.

The paper addresses the ‘Truth’ part of the ‘Voice, Treaty and Truth’ sections in the Albanese government’s proposal.

Proposed three point plan

There are three things a government should do in lieu of any new political structure. We strongly urge a better way to recognise prior occupation and help those in need, with three steps:

Recognise prior occupation of Aboriginal people in a preamble to the constitution
Establish a Parliamentary all-party standing committee for native title holders
Support Aboriginal community-controlled organisations

Recognise a Better Way will be working hand in hand with Fair Australia in the forthcoming referendum.

The Recognise a Better Way team are doing a great job building the intellectual case against the divisive Voice.

We’re working together as one to make sure every Australian learns the truth about the divisive Voice.

Aboriginal people do not need more voices;
they need a way into wider society
