May 26 – National Sorry Day

National Sorry Day is a special day that occurs in Australia on 26 May every year. It is a day of remembrance and commemoration held to highlight the impact of past policies of forcible removal on the Stolen Generations, their families, and their communities.

National Sorry Day is of particular significance to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia.

The day is an opportunity for all Australians to remember past mistakes and build stronger bridges for a richer, stronger future together.
