National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May to the 3 June. These dates mark two significant events in Australia’s Reconciliation journey, the 1967 Referendum and Mabo Day. The theme for NRW 2019 is GROUNDED IN TRUTH – Walking Together with Courage. This theme addresses the courage that it takes to engage in a process of speaking and listening to find a common ground of truth.
“At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth.”
