Today marks the first day of National Reconciliation Week, a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. This important week also commemorates two significant milestones — the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. 🖤💛❤️
This year, the theme for National Reconciliation Week is 'Be Brave. Make Change.' which challenges us all to be brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can make change for all.
In November 2020, Rural Lifestyle Options Australia launched our second Reconciliation Action Plan 'Innovate' which outlines our vision for reconciliation and our commitment to proactively contributing to a common and united future. We believe that reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward in order to create a nation strengthened by respectful and meaningful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This week and beyond choose to 'Be Brave' and 'Make Change' for a fair and equitable Australia. 🖤💛❤️
