Local Reconciliation Groups
Through annual commemorative activities, seminars and social events, volunteer-run Local Reconciliation Groups play an essential role in engaging communities in conversations that progress reconciliation. Local Reconciliation Groups regularly organise community events to mark occasions such as National Sorry Day (26 May) and Survival Day (26 January) and support national events such as NAIDOC Week (in July) and National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June).
Local Reconciliation Groups created the groundswell of community support that led to the Bridge Walk for Reconciliation and subsequent similar events around Australia that followed Corroboree 2000, a meeting of dozens of high-profile Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders at the Sydney Opera House on 27 May 2000.
