National Reconciliation Week 2020

27th May 2020

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

In this together, the theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2020, encourages all Australians to reflect on the part they play – whether big or small – on our journey towards reconciliation.

This unity of purpose creates a shared sense of belonging and identity; and this identity must value and include the histories, cultures and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Unity is of the five dimensions of reconciliation as defined by Reconciliation Australia.

For Australia to become a truly complete nation, it will take the commitment and contribution of all of us.
