What is Recognise?

Recognise is the national campaign to promote the Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Australian Constitution. It is a part of Reconciliation Australia.

The Recognise campaign

  • We must fix the historical exclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from Australia’s Constitution.
  • We also need to remove discrimination – such as the section of our Constitution which says the States can ban people from voting based on race.
  • A referendum is coming that will give Australians a chance to vote to recognise Australia’s First Peoples in the Constitution.
