National Reconciliation Week 2024: Now More Than Ever

By Sarina Russo Editorial Team

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a significant event in Australia, held annually from 27 May to 3 June. NRW encourages all Australians to explore how we can each contribute to advancing reconciliation in our country. This week is a time for everyone to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements. This year’s theme, Now More Than Ever, emphasises the ongoing need for justice and rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Now more than ever, the work continues: in treaty making, in truth-telling, in understanding our history, in education, and in tackling racism. We need connection. We need respect. We need action. And we need change.  Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.

National Apology Day
National Apology Day in Australia is observed on February 13 every year.  It is a national day commemorating the first-ever apology made in 2008 by a sitting Prime Minister acknowledging the tens of thousands of Aboriginal children who were forcibly removed from their families during Australia’s assimilation era and the significant traumatic impact that this had across First Nations communities.
Sarina Russo Group acknowledges the First Nations Peoples of this Country, the traditional custodians connected to the land, water and community on which we live, work and help others to live their best lives. We also pay respect to the Elders past, present and emerging, who strive to build a better and more sustainable future for future generations to come.
