Dawn. Lorraine Liml
What is your full name?
Dawn. Lorraine Liml
What is your postal code?
Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?
What should the change look like?
They should be included the same as the rest of us
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Where is the best place to put it?
What should the statement say?
It should be exactly the same as ours
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
You said it, they are the first people, they should be included
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?
Should the Australian Parliament keep the power to make special laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous Australians?
All Australians
If there is not enough support for a guarantee in the Constitution, what other things can we do to stop racial discrimination in national laws?
Teach in schools and on TV, also through social media, get a loved celebrity to talk about it
Do you think Indigenous people should have a say when Parliament and government make laws and policies about Indigenous affairs?
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?
Are you making a submission on behalf of a person (such as yourself) or organisation?
