Indigenous Law Centre UNSW
Funding area: Political participation
The Indigenous Law Centre is part of the Faculty of Law at UNSW. The ILC contributes to the recognition, protection and development of the legal rights and freedoms of Indigenous peoples both in Australia and internationally. The ILC has been integral to the development of constitutional reform under the stewardship of Professor Megan Davis. In partnership with the Uluru DIalogue, the ILC facilitates the Uluru Statement from the Heart and its key reforms of a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission to supervise agreement-making and truth-telling.

Mannifera is providing core, operational funding to a national education campaign to promote the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart campaign is now in its fifth year. It calls for substantive constitutional change and structural reform to enable First Nations peoples to take their rightful place in their own country with a constitutionally enshrined Voice to Parliament. Changing the Constitution requires winning a referendum with high levels of popular support.
The Indigenous Law Centre with the Uluru Dialogue team has developed a national Voice Education Project to lead the country to a successful referendum. This project will mobilise supporters and win over ‘undecided’ voters through the delivery of a national education campaign.
