Local woman Brigid Pearse is hosting an online event this weekend in support the adoption of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

Ms Pearse says there are support groups established in the Northern Rivers and the Byron Shire is about to launch theirs.

‘We feel a sense of urgency about this and now that things are opening up a little we don’t want to delay any further,’ she said. ‘We intend to host a zoom function on Saturday.’

The event will be held in the Anglican Church in Byron Bay. ‘Thomas Mayor has offered to co-host which is great,’ said Ms Pearse. ‘A group of 10-20 people will be present but all are welcome to register and join us on zoom.

Ms Pearse said that with a 5000-strong turn out for the Black Lives Matter March held in June, she is we hoping to have plenty of people to sign up to support the Uluru Statement.

The event will be held from 3-4.30pm.
