ACSQ Parliamentary submission: 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God'

“As Christians, we place a high value on peace. The Bible records Jesus of Nazareth saying: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God’…We believe that the implementation of the Voice through the proposed constitutional amendment wording will advance peace and the ongoing Reconciliation process, thus helping to foster healing and unify our country,” say Aunty Dr Rose Elu, Canon Bruce Boase, The Very Rev’d Dr Peter Catt, Anglicare’s Sue Cooke and the Anglican Schools Commission’s Sherril Butterworth in their recent Parliamentary submission

Why I am voting “yes” in the referendum: Phyllis Marsh

“Constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a pragmatic Voice to Parliament will elevate the education outcomes of Indigenous young people. Consequently our young people will be able to stand strong in who they are and be given the same opportunities as other Australian students. This is why I am voting ‘yes’ in the referendum,” says MaMu woman Phyllis Marsh, from West Moreton Anglican College
