National Reconciliation Week 2022

This year's National Reconciliation Week theme 'Be Brave. Make Change' is a challenge to all Australians — individuals, families, communities, organisations and government — to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
