Reconciliation Week

Union Court

PARSA, ANUSA and Tjabal are celebrating Reconciliation Week from the 22nd May to the 26th of May. Reconciliation Week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.

In 2017, we are reflecting upon two significant anniversaries in Australia’s reconciliation journey – 50 years since the 1967 referendum, and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision. Join us, as we commemorate these significant milestones and look to take the next steps together in our reconciliation story.

We've got some wonderful events lined up:
