Promoting truth-telling of the injustices inflicted upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, National Sorry Day is held each year to commemorate the release of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s 1997 Bringing Them Home Report. 

Join the Wurundjeri Elders, members of the Stolen Generations and the City of Whittlesea for the annual Sorry Walk and a keynote address from Troy Austin, First Peoples’ Assembly Member (Treaty) for North Metro. Flags will fly at half-mast and a minute’s silence will be held to honour those who did not come home.
