National Reconciliation Week Breakfast 2024

In recognition of Reconciliation Week 2024, DMAW Lawyers attended Reconciliation SA's annual National Reconciliation Week breakfast.

At the bustling event, emceed by Luke Carroll (television and film actor), over 2,800 guests enjoyed breakfast and reflected together on this year's theme "Now More Than Ever".

Some highlights included a touching tribute to Dr Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG, beautiful performances by Rob Edwards, Of Desert and Sea and DEM MOB and last but not least, a powerful and thought provoking talk from keynote speaker Adam Briggs (rapper, lyricist, hip-hop artist, writer, presenter, author and actor).

This year's theme is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

Thank you to Reconciliation SA for hosting this important and enjoyable event.

What is Reconciliation Week?

National Reconciliation Week is 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. It is observed from May 27th to June 3rd each year, marking two significant milestones: the anniversaries of the 1967 referendum and the High Court's Mabo decision in 1992.
