BEAM Mitchell Environment Group supports the Voice to the federal parliament for First
Nations people. This is a small step in the healing and justice that the Statement from the

BEAM acknowledges the Taungurung and Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the land that we in BEAM live and volunteer on, and that these lands were never ceded. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.

opportunity provided by this referendum process. We encourage you to learn more about the process, to talk about the importance of voting YES! with your families and friends and do what you can to make sure this referendum succeeds.
