15th ANNIVERSARY OF THE APOLOGY TO THE STOLEN GENERATIONS
Today, Monday 13 February is the 15th Anniversary of the Apology to the Stolen Generations
The Apology to the Stolen Generations by the Rudd Labor Government in 2008 was a momentous occasion. It marked the beginning of truth-telling in this country. It was an important moment shared by all Australians.
The Anniversary is a moment for us to again come together to acknowledge our past, reflect, and look towards a more reconciled future with our First Peoples.
