The making of Megan Davis and the historic Voice referendum | Australian Story
ABC Australian Story
When Megan Davis was 12 years old, her mother brought home a second-hand book with a copy of the Constitution at the back. The Indigenous girl in the housing commission home fell in love with the document. 30 years on, Megan, now a lawyer, is one of the driving forces behind the Voice referendum, a proposal to enshrine in the Constitution the right of First Nations’ people to have a say on laws that affect them. Megan believes having a Voice to Parliament will give her people the power to improve their lives. As the campaign picks up pace, she knows the stakes are high.
