We will talk about how we can work together towards reconciliation with our new RAP and celebrating National Reconciliation Week (NRW).

This Reconciliation week we will also be celebrating two significant anniversaries:

The 50th anniversary of 1967 referendum (27 May)
The 27 May 1967 referendum saw more than 90 per cent of Australians vote to give the Australian Government power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and count them in the census.

The 25th anniversary of the Mabo decision (3 June)
On 3 June 1992 the Australian High Court delivered the Mabo decision, which recognised that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a special relationship with the land. This paved the way for land rights or Native Title.

Where: ACT/SNSW Action Centre, 33 Ainslie Place, Canberra City

When: Tuesday 30th May from 3pm-4pm
