National Sorry Day is recognised each year on 26 May and commemorates the release of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s 1997 ‘Bringing Them Home’ report and honours the Stolen Generation.
This is a particularly important time for us all to remember, recognise, acknowledge and honour the Stolen Generation.
This important day is followed by National Reconciliation Week, 27 May to 3 June, which is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how we each contribute to reconciliation in Australia.
The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week is ‘In this together’, reminding us that reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.
Although we won’t be hosting an event due to COVID-19 restrictions, Whittlesea Reconcilation Group will be hosting a Sorry Day Live Event on Facebook.
