JSCCR hearing in Wodonga on September 24

Federal Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan said local leaders will speak at a public hearing held by the Joint Select Committee for Constitutional Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on Monday.

Ms McGowan is a member of the committee and is encouraging local people to attend the hearing at TAFEspace Wodonga on Monday 24 September.

“It is important the committee hears a range of perspectives before making recommendations about constitutional recognition,” Ms McGowan said.

“Thank you to everyone who made submissions to the committee’s interim report and to the inquiry. I encourage constituents to continue to contact my office with their views.”

The public hearing will be held from 12.30pm at TAFEspace, 158 Lawrence Street, Wodonga.
