    Event description

    Come celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2024 with HARR!

    Hornsby Area Residents for Reconciliation (HARR) Invites you to their Free Reconciliation Week afternoon tea. We invite Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal community members of Hornsby and surrounds to join together to watch the 2024 NSW National Reconciliation Week (NRW) Virtual event, participate in a Q&A and enjoy a lovely afternoon tea while meeting other HARR community members. 

    This event is delivered in conjunction with Reconciliation NSW. Reconciliation NSW annually hosts the NRW Virtual Breakfast event and livestreams it to Local Reconciliation Groups and workplaces across the state to host their own regional events. HARR is proud to be able to host a 2024 NRW event for the community of Hornsby and surrounds, with support from Reconciliation NSW, joining thousands of community groups, schools and workplaces to talk about this year’s NRW theme:

    #NRW2024 #NowMoreThanEver

    The National Reconciliation Week theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

    • There have been many moments in Australia’s reconciliation journey that make us want to turn away. But when things are divisive, the worst thing we can do is disengage or disconnect.
    • Now more than ever, we need to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation. We know that the 6.2 million Australians who voted YES are committed to better outcomes for First Nations people, and are with us.
    • Reconciliation supporters must stand up to defend and uphold the rights of First Nations peoples. To call out racism wherever we encounter it, and to actively reinforce the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across this continent.
    • Now more than ever, the work continues. In treaty making, in truth-telling, in understanding our history, in education, and in tackling racism. We need connection. We need respect. We need action. And we need change.  
    • Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.

      When: 29 May, 4pm-6pm

      Where: Hornsby Library (Room 4)

      About Hornsby Area Residents for Reconciliation (HARR): 
      We are the local Reconciliation Group of the Hornsby and extended area. Since 1998, HARR has worked locally to:

      • raise awareness and advance Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents
      • advocate for social justice and
      • promote better understanding and appreciation of First Nation’s history, cultures and heritage.

      About National Reconciliation Week: National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

      We hope you’ll join us!
