National Reconciliation Week 2020
National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to reflect on our shared histories and relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation.
Reconciliation Week May 27th to June 3rd 2020
Reconciliation Week this year is a chance to celebrate and build on respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians and explore how non-Aboriginal Australians can be active in promoting reconciliation. Here’s some things that you could do:
