ACTCOSS and Relationships Australia would like to invite you to an event to acknowledge the 11th Anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations. This is an important date to acknowledge, because the effects of past policies on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander families and communities has been profound and continues today.

 

2019 marks the 11th Anniversary of the National Apology for the members of the Stolen Generations.

The ACTCOSS Gulanga team are working in partnership with Dhunlung Yarra team from Relationships Australia Canberra and Region to present to the broader community 'Stories from the Children of the Stolen Generations'.

This presentation will give some insight into the effects of the intergenerational trauma experienced by the children whose parents and families were struggling to heal from the effects of being removed as a child.
