Message for National Sorry Day 2020

“One of the purposes of National Sorry Day each year is to help Australians have the courage to own the truth of our history and to talk about it. Part of that history involves the huge dislocation caused to families and communities by the forced removal of children,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall, as he calls us to a minute’s silence on National Sorry Day at 12 noon on Tuesday 26 May
