National Sorry Day

on 2023-05-26 (2 months from now)

National Sorry Day in Australia is an annual event held on 26 May to acknowledge and remember the mistreatment of the nation’s Indigenous peoples and to show respect for their past and present struggles. It marks the anniversary of the 1997 Bringing Them Home Report, which documented the forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families by Australian governments. The day is an opportunity for Australians to come together and show support for Indigenous peoples and work towards a better future.
