National Reconciliation Week – 27 May – 3 June
The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week – In this together – resonates in so many ways as we navigate the shared challenges presented by Covid-19.
Although social distancing requirements will this year limit our capacity to come together for physical events, the week still presents an opportunity to reflect on our history, and turn our minds to the contribution each of us can make towards reconciliation.
Running from 27 May to 3 June, National Reconciliation Week commemorates two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision. The RAP Committee has put together the attached list of ideas of ways in which teams, conferences or services may wish to mark the week.
National Reconciliation Week immediately follows National Sorry Day on 26 May, which this year, is also the third anniversary of the Uluru Statement of the Heart. Keep an eye on the Reconciliation Action workplace group for an opportunity to join an upcoming social justice Wednesday Webinar to learn more about the Statement, and what you can do to support it.
