Sorry Day will be held on the 26 May 2022 and is to remember and reflect on the treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their family as part of the Stolen Generation policies.
The landmark report on ‘The Stolen Generations’ – the Bringing them Home Report was tabled on this day in 1998.
It is an opportunity for all people to reflect on how the policies of government can lead to such horrible injustices and how we can remedy this now and create policies today, so it never happens again.
Resources and statistics to use on Sorry Day are available at https://healingfoundation.org.au/
