Anti-Discrimination NSW


​National Sorry Day

Published: 26 May 2016

Today is the National Sor​ry Day followed by Reconciliation Week from the 27th May. 

National Sorry day is to acknowledge what had happened to the people of the Stolen Generations. It is to remember the great injustice that was brought upon the children of Indigenous Australians who were involuntary removed from their families, communities and culture.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people face unfair treatment in many areas of life. When you are treated unfairly just because you come from a particular group, this is known as discrimination. NSW has anti-discrimination laws to help Aboriginal people address many types of discrimination. 

​​​Know your rights​​

The Anti-discrimination Board provides good service consumer information – Good Service Mob that assists and supports the Aboriginal community by providing information sessions about their rights as consumers and what free services are available to them. 

To commemorate Sorry Day a candle light vigil will be held by Blacktown City Council
