National Reconciliation Week 2019

At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year National Reconciliation Week (NRW) has the theme “Grounded in Truth – Walk Together with Courage” reflecting the fact that according to the 2018 Australian Reconciliation Barometer, Australians are ready to come to terms with our history as a crucial step towards a unified future. The dates for NRW  – 27th May to 3rd June – remain the same each year, and serve to commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey: the successful 1967 referendum which recognised the voting rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and the High Court Mabo decision, which recognised the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as traditional owners of the land. View the 2019 NRW Guide for more insights into the themes behind reconciliation as well as the 2019 poster design, read the May issue of Reconciliation News for the latest on the journey toward unity, and visit the NRW website for more, including NRW events around Australia.
