To commemorate National Sorry Day, you are invited to attend Sorry Day in the North on Friday, 25th of May. Find out more about the event here…
Relationships Australia SA and the Australian Institute of Social Relations would like to acknowledge the Stolen Generations and to say Sorry for the past and present injustices Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples continue to face.
Sorry Day is held annually on May 26. Last year’s Sorry Day marked the 20th anniversary of the handing down of the Bringing Them Home Report. The report was a result of a National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children and Their Families. This report is a tribute to the strength and struggles of many thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people affected by forcible removal. We acknowledge the hardships they endured and the sacrifices they made. We remember and lament all the children who will never come home.
There will be many events around Australia to remind and raise awareness among politicians, policymakers and the wider public about the significance of the Stolen Generations, and the profound and damaging impact that this has had, and continues to have, on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is also a day to celebrate their survival, culture, and community.
Relationships Australia SA in partnership with many other groups will be putting on an event on Friday 25 May 2018 to commemorate Sorry Day at the Stolen Generation Memorial and Healing Garden in Stebonheath Park, Andrews Farm. Everyone is welcome to attend this event which grows each year and includes lots of great activities, food, and music.
