Sorry Day 2023
Friday 26th May 2023 marks the 26th anniversary of the release of the Bringing Them Home Report, which was the Report of the Human Rights Commission’s National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families.
WA Stolen Generations Aboriginal Corporation invites you to join them at the recently installed Stolen Generations Memorial at Wellington Square in East Perth to commemorate this significant day.
You can join them in the Marquee for morning tea and to view their audio-visual presentations from 11.00am to 12 noon. At Midday, a formal ceremony will commence with a Welcome to Country and a range of presentations and live music. At 12.30pm they will invite you to participate in a smoking ceremony as you walk around the Stolen Generations Memorial in honour of the Stolen Generations Survivors and particularly those who have passed away. Formal proceedings will finish at 12.45pm and you are then invited to stay for a light lunch and a yarn!
