National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs from May 27 to June 3.  This year, we mark two important milestones in the journey of reconciliation – the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the 25th anniversary of the High Court of Australia’s recognition of native title in the Mabo case.  This year’s NRW theme is Let’s Take the Next Steps.  Why not make an effort to find out more about these important events and to celebrate them?  Go to:
