what is reconciliation week?

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to reflect on our shared histories and relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation. The week is framed by the anniversaries of two significant milestones in our reconciliation journey - the successful 1967 Referendum (27 May) and the High Court Mabo decision (3 June). 

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2019 is
'Grounded in Truth, Walk Together with Courage'.
