Today is Sorry Day and it marks 20 years since the Bringing them Home Report was tabled in Parliament. Sorry Day is a National Day of Healing for all Australians and a day when we acknowledge past wrongs. Social Futures acknowledges the importance of Sorry Day to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and today especially, we think of those who were taken from their families. May such an horrific thing never occur on our soil again. And may the healing begin.

If you would like to commemorate Sorry Day, our Board member, Nick Freeburn is presenting alongside Prof Norm Sheehan at Gnibi College of Indigenous Australian Peoples, SCU Lismore Campus.

50 years since the 1967 Referendum which marked a turning point in human rights Aboriginal Australians. It amended the constitution to include Aboriginal people in the census - to be counted as members of our community. No doubt there's much more work to do, but it's important to celebrate the wins and this was certainly one.
