Sorry Day Stolen Generations Community Gathering 2024

When

Sunday 26 May from 10am to 2pm

National Sorry Day (26th May) is a day of great significance to Coota Girls Survivors, their families and descendants, and the broader Stolen Generations community.

Each year, National Sorry Day commemorates and acknowledges the atrocities faced by First Nations children who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, and the continuing impact of forcible removal and assimilation policies on Stolen Generations Survivors, their families and whole communities.

This year on the 26th of May 2024 Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation will host a major event on Tarpeian Lawn (Gadigal Country) overlooking an amazing view of Sydney Harbour. This Sorry Day Stolen Generations Community Gathering aims to provide a space for the continuing important work of truth-telling and healing.

We invite you to enjoy the beautiful views of Gadigal Country, chose from a selection of delicious First Nations foods, support First Nations business by purchasing from a selection of stalls, connect with each other, and immerse yourself in the many cultural and educational experiences available.

All Stolen Generations Survivors, family members and descendants, First Nations people and non-Indigenous supporters are welcome to attend this event.
