National Reconciliation Week is from 27 May to 3 June. The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians. National Reconciliation Week is of significance to all Australians: it is the precursor to all Australians living in harmony, cooperation and understanding.
