We have been able to make some important decisions, but there is still a lot of work to do.  

We need to keep yarning about the details that Community would like to see. What are the structural reforms that will improve the next generations’ lives? Do we want dedicated seats in the Victorian Parliament that Aboriginal people vote for, do we want our own Parliament for our people? Maybe we want both. Nothing is off the table, so let’s go for it! 

I wanted to bring my knowledge and understanding of how government works to make sure that our communities can get the best possible outcomes from the Treaty process.
