June Reconciliation News

National Reconciliation Week is in its last days and again we’ve been inspired and encouraged by the breadth and number of events (well over 100 in Victoria) that have shone a light on our past, helping us to develop a deeper understanding of our national story.

There are still opportunities to participate, with the Long Walk taking place on Saturday 2 June (come and say hello to us at our stall at Federations Square) and Mabo Day the following day.  Read below for details.  And to check out all the NRW events visit the Reconciliation Australia NRW Calendar.

Our flagship event for NRW was the HART Awards Presentation Ceremony, which showcased the exciting work being done by community organisations and local councils to advance reconciliation.  Read below for the announcement of this year’s winners.

We were very excited to launch our new website in May, and invite you to visit it here and please share it with your networks.

In a little over a month, NAIDOC Week 2018 kicks off. This year’s theme is “Because of her we can”, celebrating the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make – to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.

Thank you to everyone who attended or organised a NRW event, and welcome to the many, many new people who joined the reconciliation movement throughout the week.

We have a New Website!!!

We are very excited to announce that we have just recently launched our new-look website. Please check it out here

The new website has been 12 months in the making (much longer on our wish list) and was very much the result of a team effort of past and present staff, Rona Glynn-McDonald – the website developer who created this site for us, and volunteers who gave us important feedback along the way. The website is an important tool we will utilise to secure more funding and partners, and to inspire meaningful action and ensure our work has maximum impact.

Please share the new website with your networks!

National Reconciliation Week ends on Mabo Day, June 3. A small sample of upcoming Victorian NRW events are listed below. For a full listing of events visit Reconciliation Australia’s Online NRW Calendar
