National Sorry Day

The unfinished business of Sorry Day

On 26 May each year, Sorry Day marks the anniversary of the tabling of the Bringing Them Home report in the Australian Parliament in 1997 and commemorates Stolen Generations survivors. The report was a landmark truth telling process, sadly almost 30 years on a number of the report’s 54 recommendations remain unmet.

The theme for this year, ‘Bringing Them Home – the unfinished business’, highlights the growing urgency of acting on the outstanding recommendations. Remaining Stolen Generations survivors are ageing, and many do not have access to a full and fair redress scheme, or to the records that hold keys to their stories.

The time to act is now. We must ensure that Stolen Generations survivors are supported to age with dignity and respect.
