National Reconciliation Week - Be a Voice for Generations

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us (individuals, families, communities, organisations and governments) can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.  These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

The theme for NRW this year is “Be a Voice for Generations.” 

The theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.

Reconciliation is about creating respectful relationships between the wider Australian community and Australia’s First Nations peoples.  It is an ongoing journey that reminds us that while generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful change, future gains are likely to take just as much, if not more, effort.

For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation.
