More than a word. Reconciliation takes action

National Reconciliation Week 27 May – 3 June

Reconciliation Australia’s theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week is More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, – urging the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
 
This year’s theme is an extremely important one, one which can be embraced by all of us.
 
Consider how you can move from safe to brave. Add your voice to the calls for reconciliation and justice and support the voice of our First Nations People by sharing the truth about our shared history and encourage others to learn more.
 
Being only three percent of the Australian population, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples need all of us to raise the profile of important issues.
 
There are many resources available that you can utilise or share to broaden your knowledge or that of others too. 

Reconciliation Week events and activities are taking place across the nation, from awards to webinars, virtual and in-person events there really is something for everyone! I encourage you to search for an event that suits you.
