It's been 15 years since the first Sorry Day, a day of remembrance for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families. Today also marks the beginning of National Reconciliation Week. This year’s Sorry Day commemorated the 5th anniversary of Kevin Rudd’s apology speech, which both apologized to the Stolen Generation and promised to reduce the inequality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
However, many have argued that not enough has been done in the past five years to honor the promises made in 2008.
