National Sorry Day offers the EWB community an opportunity to acknowledge the impact of the policies spanning more than 150 years of forcible removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families. The day gives people the chance to share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities.
Various local events will likely be available including concerts, bbqs, reconciliation walks, Sorry Day flag raising, morning teas or lunches and speeches.
National Sorry Day also gives people the opportunity to show their commitment towards reconciliation, particularly around fulfilling the recommendations from the Bringing Them Home report.
