National Reconciliation Week

Today marks the start of National Reconciliation Week, a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and learn how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Reconciliation week always starts on May 27 to mark the anniversary of the 1967 referendum when Australians voted to remove clauses in our Constitution that discriminated again Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

So what does reconciliation mean? Reconciliation involves building positive, respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. These relationships will then help us close the gaps and achieve a sense of fairness and enhance everyone’s wellbeing.

We will be sharing more content throughout the week, and encourage everyone to participate in Reconciliation Week.

You can check out a list of events on this week here.
