National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2020 will be celebrated entirely online, a way of life we have all become very familiar with in the past couple of months.
The anniversary dates which mark NRW are significant milestones for reconciliation: 27 May – the 1967 Referendum, and 3 June – the High Court Mabo decision. Like other important dates we commemorate, the purpose remains the same even if the way we mark it is different.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.
2020 marks twenty years since 250,000 Australians walked across the Sydney Harbour Bridge and across bridges in all capital cities and many other cities and towns around the country.
