Despite snap lockdowns, multiple postponements, and last-minute relocations to different states, National Reconciliation Week (NRW) this year was filled with activity, as supporters exemplified the theme More than a word: Reconciliation takes action.
From 27 May to 3 June, in our big cities and small towns, and in workplaces, schools and communities, supporters of the reconciliation movement were urged to speak up on the tougher issues.
With the theme More than a word: Reconciliation takes action, National Reconciliation Week 2021, asked Australians to move from ally to accomplice, and participate in braver, more impactful action for reconciliation.
To assist them on their journey, Reconciliation Australia compiled 20 Actions for Reconciliation, as well as a quiz on how far we’ve come, posters, an event calendar and a national Acknowledgement of Country.
