National Sorry Day

Congress’ Link Up Service is proud to host a special event to commemorate National Sorry Day and the 20th anniversary of the Bringing Them Home Report. 

The “Bringing Them Home” report, 1997 acknowledged the large scale removal of Aboriginal children from their families and it recommended that a National Sorry Day be held each year on 26 May “to commemorate the history of forcible removals and its effects.” 

National Sorry Day is a time for us to come together to acknowledge the devastation caused to our families and communities and remember our Stolen Generations who have passed, who never made it how and pay tribute to survivors.

Join Congress on Friday May 26 at 10:30am at the Uniting Church Lawns in the Todd Mall to acknowledge the day and show your respect to members of the Stolen Generations.

There will be music, stories, the Sea of Hands, and a smoking ceremony and a BBQ lunch
