Amar Singh is stopping in Kyogle on Thursday, August 3 as part of his two-month tour to promote a Yes vote for the Voice campaign.
Mr Singh is the 2023 Australian of the Year Local Hero and founder of Turbans 4 Australia.
Mr Singh had many discussions with interfaith and multicultural leaders and he saw “an information gap filled with misinformation” about the Voice to Parliament.
“Since winning the award (Local Hero), it has been a calling and a moral decision for me to support the Voice,” Mr Singh said.
“On this 25,000 km round trip around Australia, I will speak to schools, places of worship, and ethnic community groups to inform them about the significance of the Voice and why multicultural Australia must engage with this important issue.”
Mr Singh has dedicated his life to charity, human rights and promoting multicultural and religious tolerance.
“I believe this moment to be an important first step towards achieving First Nations justice, and I want to bring multicultural Australia along this important journey,” he said.
Mr Singh will arrive in the Kyogle CBD on Thursday at about 11am and will be happy to chat to anyone interested in learning more about the Voice. He is expected to be in town for most of the day.
