Don’t Keep History a Mystery

National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June)

Each year National Reconciliation Week (#NRW2018), celebrates achievements in our journey towards reconciliation. The week reminds us that big changes take persistence and courage, so lets celebrate together and take the next steps.

The theme for this years Reconciliation Week is Don’t Keep History a Mystery.
