National Sorry Day

Today 26 May marks National #SorryDay. On this day of healing, we pause to acknowledge and remember the mistreatment, suffering, grief, and injustice experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, which we now know as the #StolenGenerations.

This day is so important as it is also a reminder that injustice is still ongoing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to this day. We encourage everyone to learn more about the history of reconciliation and healing in Australia and to deepen your understanding of our shared histories and cultures.

Please join us this evening for the screening of two short Aboriginal films – this is a time to remember the importance of privileging and amplifying First Nations’ voices as you add your voice to calls for reconciliation and justice.
