Sorry Day about learning from the past
26th May 2017
National Sorry Day is an important day for Australians to reflect upon the devastating impacts that government policies have had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and make a commitment to change, the Australian Association of Social Workers National President, Professor Karen Healy AM has said in a media release.
“For social workers, Sorry Day is about acknowledging the strength and resilience of Indigenous Australians and considering how far we still need to go to address the consequences of the Stolen Generation,” said Professor Healy.
