The vision of the Reconciliation NSW is to create a reconciled, just and equitable community for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians in New South Wales. We work to inform, support and inspire the people of New South Wales to engage in reconciliation.
Reconciliation cannot only be symbolic. For reconciliation to be achieved there needs to be a series of real, practical outcomes in relation to the systemic disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In a reconciled Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children will have the same life opportunities and choices as non-Indigenous children, and the length and quality of a person’s life will not be determined by their racial background. For this reason, NSWRC focuses on both symbolic and practical elements of reconciliation at the local level.
