National Sorry Day 2018

National Sorry Day is held on 26 May each year to acknowledge and recognise members of the Stolen Generations.

In particular this day raises awareness of the policies of forced removal and the profound impact this had on children, their families and communities.

The idea of holding a ‘Sorry Day’ was first mentioned as one of the 54 recommendations of the Bringing them home Report, which was tabled in Parliament on 26 May 1997. This report was the result of a two year National Inquiry into the forcible removal and of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families, communities and cultural identity. This removal and separation was carried out under Federal, State and Territory laws and policies from the 1800s to the 1970s.
