There will be two Indigenous Voice public consultation sessions hosted in Port Lincoln next Tuesday.

Indigenous Voices co-design members are gathering feedback across the country on proposals for Local and Regional Voices and a National Voice.

The sessions will take place on Tuesday, March 16 at Malle Park Football Club, from 9.30am to 12.30pm and then another session at 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

The proposals provide an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to provide advice and input on matters that are important to improve their lives.

Local and Regional Voices would be community designed and led governance structures at a regional level, while the National Voice would be a national body made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to provide advice to the Australian Parliament and Government.

All Australians, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, and invited to attend to provide feedback on the proposals.

Local voices are important and need to be heard so the best proposals can be presented in the final report to the federal government.

Tickets for the Port Lincoln session are free.
