The Western Bulldogs remain committed to a journey of reconciliation.  We are proud of the role we must play in building a culture of equity, respect and recognition of the cultures, histories and contributions of First Nations people.

We are dedicated to developing stronger links with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and giving their voice a platform through storytelling and knowledge sharing.  Sport and culture are intrinsically linked.

Later this year, a referendum will determine if First Nations people will have permanent representation and recognition in the Australian Constitution.

Creating this enshrined voice was the first key aim of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, alongside ‘Treaty’ and ‘Truth’.

Given our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and with an ongoing education process with our staff, players and Board, we support the YES vote for the introduction of a First Nations Voice to Parliament.

We believe that a First Nations Voice is an important step which will have a positive impact now, and for future generations.

We encourage every Bulldogs member and fan to gain a greater understanding of the Voice to Parliament proposal to inform their decision before the Vote.
