NRW - Now More Than Ever

National Reconciliation Week | 27 May – 3 June 2024

National Reconciliation Week – Now More Than Ever

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) invites all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us, be it individuals, families, communities, organisations or governments – can foster 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.

Under the banner “Now More Than Ever“, this year’s NRW theme resonates deeply.

Now more than ever, we need to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation.  We must stand up to defend and uphold the rights of First Nations peoples.  To call out racism wherever we encounter it, and to actively reinforce the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across this continent.

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, let’s seize this moment to pave the way for a fairer, more just, and reconciled country for all.

When it comes to reconciliation, each of us has a crucial part to play.  Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.
