The 1967 federal referendum was a significant moment in Australia’s political history. Over 90 per cent of Australians voted ‘Yes’ to counting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the census and giving the Australian Government the power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Join ABC RN’s Daniel Browning as he leads a panel discussion on the impact of the referendum and whether changes to the Australian Constitution reduced discrimination against Indigenous people in Australia.
