Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this post may mention and contain the images of deceased peoples.
Today is National Sorry Day, a day to remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, which we now know as the Stolen Generations. On this day, we acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process for our people and nation.
It is therefore fitting that Griffith launches our commitment to Reconciliation on National Sorry Day. The Reconciliation Statement Launch will start at 10 am today and you can watch the livestream event here.
Griffith acknowledges that Reconciliation is a shared process where every staff member and every student has a role to play in effecting positive change in our learning, teaching, and research, to build a better future and a more inclusive Australia.
