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.
As Anchor works towards developing a reflective Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) under the guidance of Reconciliation Australia, it is a week of special significance.
The dates for the week remain the same each year: 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum on 27 May and the High Court Mabo decision on 3 June, 1992.
Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
In 2020 Reconciliation Australia marks 20 years of shaping Australia’s journey towards a more just, equitable and reconciled nation.
On this journey Australians are all In This Together, the theme of this year’s National Reconciliation Week. And in these challenging times, it’s a theme which could not be more fitting.
