National Sorry Day is held on the 26th of May each year.

The day is held to acknowledge the devastation caused to our families and Communities due the forced removal of our children from their families resulting in the Stolen Generations.

Sorry Day is an opportunity to pay tribute to Stolen Generations members and to remember those who have passed into the Dreaming. Having a national Sorry Day was a recommendation of the 1997 ‘Bringing Them Home’ report.
