On Tuesday 12 September, the TALS Hobart team met with Indigenous leader and Yes23 campaigner to yarn about the Voice.
TALS has previously shared information about the referendum and Voice constitutional amendment on our social media platforms. The Board of TALS has also released its support for a Yes vote.
The development of local and regional voices to be involved with a parliamentary Voice is praised by TALS, allowing self-determination for all Aboriginal communities across the State.
Lee-Anne Carter, TALS Community Engagement and Program Manager, said, "What works in one community doesn't necessarily work in another community. Part of the messaging is how we, as a legal service, can also empower our communities to be aware of what this process is and how it might impact various communities".
On the 25th January 2024 the Tasmanian Aboriginal Legal Service launched its Bail Support program pilot.
The Tasmanian Aboriginal Legal Service wants to see genuine engagement and consultation with a wide range of Aboriginal communities and organisations to support the best outcome for Aboriginal children and young people.
