This year's theme for Reconciliation Week is Be a Voice for Generations. The theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise. For the work of generations past, and to the benefit of future generations, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.
National Reconciliation Week, 27 May to 3 June, is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how all of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
Want to show your support for reconciliation? Join the popular and important annual Reconciliation Walk hosted by Willum Warrain on Sunday 4 June at 11am from Pelican Park Recreation Centre.
