Reconciliation: Understand and open your heart

Every year National Reconciliation Week is on May 27-June 3.

These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

The theme for this year’s Reconciliation Week is Be Brave. Make Change.

In his first speech as Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese said his government would adopt the Uluru Statement from the Heart in full.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an invitation to the Australian people calling for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making and truth-telling about First Nation’s history.
