Today is National Sorry Day, a day to acknowledge the strength of the stolen generation survivors and to reflect on how we can all come together to contribute to the healing of our country and our people.

To observe National Sorry Day, we encourage you to take the time to learn the stories of the stolen generation. Stolen generations refer to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who were forcibly removed from their families and communities based on assimilation policies.

Today we want you to take the time to acknowledge and recognise Survivors of the Stolen Generations. It honours the resilience and self-determination of Aboriginal people impacted by the forced removal of babies and children from their families.

On this day, together as Australians, we extend a heartfelt apology and acknowledge that we’re living and operating on lands traditionally owned and nurtured by Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples. We all have a shared responsibility to work together to address the historical injustices and strive to achieve the aims of the Closing the Gap campaigns.

Past government policies very much still impact the health and well-being of Aboriginal people and their families today. Mediscrubs is committed to supporting truth-telling and the ongoing process of healing for our Aboriginal communities.
