A significant step along the road to Constitutional Recognition is fast approaching.  The Bill of Recognition introduced to Federal Parliament in November is expected to be voted on this Wednesday 13 February.
 
ANTaR is asking for your support to call on Federal Politicians to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Constitution and protect all Australians from racial discrimination.
