This Wednesday marks the beginning National Reconciliation Week for 2020. This year’s theme is ‘In this Together’, which allows us as to assess what role we can play, as Greek Australians , on the journey towards reconciliation.
As Reconciliation Australia states, this week is indeed “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 Greek Community of Melbourne is proud of the close relationship it has with the First Nations people and will endeavour to strengthen these bonds in the months to come. We stand by them and walk with them on their journey.
Over the next month our media releases will include the aboriginal flag alongside our own emblem to acknowledge their just and rightful place in the history of our Nation.
We urge members of our Community to get involved in any way they see fit, as well as promoting and supporting the events organised throughout the week.
