Labor WA senator Sue Lines and member for the agricultural region Shelley Payne will be in Narrogin on Wednesday, May 3 to hold a forum on the upcoming Voice to Parliament referendum.

So far forums have been held across WA in Albany, Port Hedland, Mandurah and Northam, with Esperance, Narrogin, Waroona and Katanning to host the community tour in the coming weeks.

“In these meetings, I’ve heard the views of many voices, from elders, young people, stolen generations and non-indigenous people,” Ms Lines said.

“I feel very passionately about the Uluru Statement of the Heart, I am committed to achieving this momentous change to our constitution and I am dedicated to hearing from and speaking to as many Western Australians as I can.”

Ms Lines said that one of the aims of the forums is to tackle misinformation.

“I feel my role is to present local community members the facts so they’re able to make informed decisions on how they will vote.”

The Narrogin information session will take place at the Narrogin Town Hall between 12.30-2pm.

All members of the community are welcome to attend.

Registration for the event is essential and can be made by emailing alexandra.fry@aph.gov.au.
