Say Yes: A Story of Friendship, Fairness and a Vote for Hope
Once there were two little girls who were best friends. They did everything together. As they got older they weren’t allowed to do the same things anymore. Because they looked different. Because of the law.
This is a story about the landmark 1967 Referendum, the two women who came together to change the law ... and how the Australian people said YES.
Suitable for ages 7+
