National Sorry Day

 

The first National Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998 - one year after the tabling of the report Bringing them Home, May 1997. The report was the result of an enquiry by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission into the removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families.

 

Joblink Plus recognise National Sorry Day annually to reflect on the stolen generation and hear from the local Indigenous people we work closely with in our communities. We work daily with a diverse range of participants, partners and staff. We value their history and individual experiences which enrich all of us.
