National Sorry Day

Monday 26th May / presented by Jane Hebiton

Our Indigenous people are still living on borrowed time…

Today is National Sorry Day - an annual day of commemoration and remembrance of all those who have been impacted by the government policies of forcible removal that have resulted in the stolen generations.

It’s been held annually on May 26 each year since 1998, and was born out of a key recommendation made by the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families in the Bringing Them Home Report.

This had a profound effect on the Australian public.

The Report detailed unquestionable evidence about the forcible removal of thousands of Aboriginal and some Torres Strait Islander children from their families and communities.

There’s work to be done and this morning we take a look at what has happened and what lies ahead on Sorry day with the National Sorry Day Committee Non-Indigenous Co-Chair Sonja Braidner AND National Sorry Day Committee Indigenous Chair Mark Baumgart.
