National Reconciliation Week passed us by in a blur. There were a number of fantastic events rolling throughout the week, and it was great to see communities getting out there and supporting reconciliation.
The week was kicked off to a great start after three of the original Sapphires joined us at breakfast on the 27th of May. Lois Peeler, Beverly Briggs and Laurel Robinson shared their remarkable and inspirational stories of the sixties, singing and service with a rapt audience at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
Events then rolled out across the state, including the Lowitja O'Donoghue Oration presented by Olga Havnen, Reconciliation events with the Onkaparinga Council and Taoundi College (pictured right), and many events in the workplace, schools, churches and universities. Reconciliation SA was pleased to end a fantastic week by getting involved in the Riverland's reconciliation event on Monday the 3rd of June.
These events plus many more during National Reconciliation Week show our commitment to make a meaningful change in our society. Reconciliation SA was proud to see so many people out supporting the Reconciliation Movement during such a special week!
However, reconciliation doesn't end with NRW - we need to work all year round to advance reconciliation in our society. That means working together to achieve a more just and equal Australia for everyone - and we want you on board.
