About the event
MUA Presents, COME WALK WITH US, with Special Guests Vicki Morta and Uncle Terry O'Shane.
You are invited to the launch of COME WALK WITH US produced by the Maritime Union of Australia about the journey of MUA member and seafarer, Vicki Morta and her quest to become an advocate for the Voice to Parliament. The film showcases the MUA’s long record of solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, from wharfie Fred Maynard who led the first all Aboriginal political Voice, the AAPA, to today supporting the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the referendum for its key proposal: a constitutionally enshrined First Nations Voice. We follow seafarer Vicky Morta on her personal journey as the first female Indigenous bosun, to her home to learn about her peoples history from her Elders, to the national stage where she has become a prominent champion in the ‘Yes’ campaign.
