On Wednesday it is the anniversary of Sorry Day, to remember the systematic removal of Indigenous children from their families and communities throughout much of the 20th Century. May 26 is the yearly commemoration of the Stolen Generations.
To note the advances made while recognising that the journey toward healing is only half-way there, there will be a Bridge Walk over the Commonwealth Bridge at midday. See the details below.
There will also be a memorial service with a candlelight walk to Reconciliation Place, gathering at 5.30 onwards at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, at 15 Blackall Street BARTON ACT 2600 (cnr King’s Avenue), for a 6.00pm start.
All are welcome: this is reconciliation in action. Matilda House will lead the walk.
