National Sorry Day: National Sorry Day remembers and acknowledges 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'. A Sorry Day event was held at the Queanbeyan Bicentennial Hall to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on the healing process for our people and nation. The lunch was an opportunity for First Nations people to share stories and reflect on steps that have been made, and those we can continue to make towards reconciliation.
