National Sorry Day is a time for action

25 May, 2022

26 May is National Sorry Day, a day to remember and acknowledge the shameful mistreatment of First Nations Peoples and the Stolen Generations who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.

26 May 2022 also marks five years since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was delivered at the end of the 2017 First Nations National Constitutional Convention at Uluru.

IEU-QNT Branch Secretary Terry Burke said National Sorry Day was a solemn occasion for Australians to reflect on the trauma inflicted on First Nations Peoples since colonisation and acknowledge the wrongdoings of the past.
