National Reconciliation Week 2020: In This Together

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 theme for NRW in 2020 is In this Together reminding us that whether in a crisis or in reconciliation we are all #InThisTogether.

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 (27 May) and the High Court Mabo decision (3 June).

NRW reminds us all that reconciliation is journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Straight Island peoples. On this journey, all Australians are In This Together.
