National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to
learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore
how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The
dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates
commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the
successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.
When the Reconciliation Australia decided on the theme of #InThisTogether, this pandemic was not on the horizon. That theme is now resonating in ways that were not foreseen, but it reminds us that, whether in a crisis or in reconciliation, we are all #InThisTogether.
In 2020, Reconciliation Australia marks 20 years of shaping Australia's journey towards a more just, equitable and reconciled nation. 2020 also marks the 20th anniversary of the reconciliation walks of 2000, when people came together to walk on bridges and roads across the nation to show their support for reconciliation.
