Consult with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to determine this.
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?

Should a new Indigenous group be set up under the Constitution to give advice and make sure Indigenous people have a voice in political decisions that affect them?
Is it worth creating the new group if it can only give advice and does not have the power to block new laws?
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
no chance of possible discrimination
