Nova Peris, the first Australian Indigenous woman Senator

Today I read the first speech of Nova Peris, delivered at the Australian Parliament, as an elected people’s representative. She is the first Australian Indigenous woman Senator. She is from the Northern Territory in Australia. Her speech refers to many issues that are currently alive in Australian society including the practice of active and passive racism. She spoke about the importance of educating everyone, creating awareness and of opportunities for everyone. She emphasised on equality, dignity, freedom, rights and justice, and how we should live them. And how we should enable ourselves and each other to live our true potential.
