National Sorry Day 2017

Today is National Sorry Day and this year marks the 20th anniversary since the handing down of the Bringing Them Home Report.

National Sorry Day is an Australia-wide observance to remind and raise awareness about the significance of the Stolen Generations, and the impact this had and continues to have on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

The first Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998, a year after the Bringing Them Home Report was presented to Parliament. The report resulted from an inquiry into the removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families, and recommended both an apology to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and reparations.

National Sorry Day is a day where people can come together and share steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations.
