Post-referendum discussion with Peta MacGillivray

Peta MacGillivray is an Aboriginal justice advocate, a Kalkutungu woman, lawyer and doctoral researcher with strong connections to community.

Australia’s referendum to vote on Constitutional recognition of First Peoples is part of a many decades-long history of advocacy for self-determination. While this conversation is largely a post-referendum discussion, it is with an understanding that the referendum moment was not the beginning nor the end of the work that needs to be done.
