National Reconciliation Week 2017

Each year, National Reconciliation Week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians in the journey towards reconciliation. 

This year we celebrate significant anniversaries of two notable events; 27 May, the day the historic 1967 Referendum was carried, and 3 June, when the High Court delivered its landmark judgement in the Mabo case in 1992.

This year those dates are especially significant being the 50th anniversary of the Referendum and the 25th anniversary of Mabo. Both these events forever changed Australia and it is fitting that as we continue to push for reconciliation, we reflect on the hard work of so many people before us.

This year’s theme Let’s Take the Next Steps encourages us all to draw on the dedication and determination of past campaigners for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights and support the movement for Constitutional recognition.
