National Reconciliation Week is an opportunity for us to embrace, celebrate and learn about Aboriginal culture, history and achievements.
The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2020- “In this Together” - was chosen by Reconciliation Australia before the coronavirus pandemic and resonates in ways we could not have predicted.
Although National Reconciliation Week will look a little different this year due to COVID-19, there are a number of virtual ways you can participate in the week. Visit: National Reconciliation Australia's 20 ways to be in this together.
