Sorry Day Walk
Commemorating National Reconciliation Week
RDA Far South Coast joined the community in participating in a number of the Reconciliation Week 2019 events held throughout the Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley regions. This year’s theme – Grounded in Truth; Walk Together with Courage – continues with the truth-telling vision put forward by Reconciliation Australia and the long-term goal of a more unified future.
The Sorry Day Walk saw approximately 1500 members of the community come together and walk across Nowra Bridge, finishing at the United Aboriginal Mission Homes in Bomaderry.
Held each year on 26 May, National Sorry Day is a significant part of the healing process. The day recognises how past wrongs, current attitudes and Government policies negatively impact Indigenous people. Most importantly, National Sorry Day is an opportunity for the local community to show solidarity and recognition of moving forward together.
