Sorry Day

Today is National Sorry Day.
National Sorry Day is an Australia-wide observance held on May 26 each year. This day gives people the chance to come together and share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities. Stolen generations refer to Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.

Locally the day was observed with a lunch hosted by the Port Phillip Citizens for Reconciliation in South Melbourne for local elders and members of Port Phillip's indigenous community.
