National Reconciliation Week
National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The dates of National Reconciliation Week, 27 May to 3 June, commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
This year’s National Reconciliation Week theme, ‘Grounded in Truth; Walk Together with Courage’, aims to foster positive race relations. It highlights that relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the broader community must be grounded in a foundation of truth. Whether engaging in challenging conversations or unlearning and relearning what we already know, this journey requires all of us to walk together with courage.
Anglicare NT acknowledges and celebrates the strengths, capacities and stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their right to self-determination. We are committed to two-way learning and working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people towards justice and reconciliation.
