National Sorry Day

Aboriginal Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice
Tuesday 26 May, 2020

On the 26th of May 1997 the landmark Bringing them Home report was tabled in federal parliament. Bringing them Home is the final report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families and was conducted by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (now called the Australian Human Rights Commission) between 1995 and 1997.

On 26 May 1998, the first National Sorry Day was held to commemorate the anniversary of the report and remember the grief, suffering and injustice experienced by the stolen generations.

You can purchase a Sorry Flower to mark the day from the Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corporation
