10th Anniversary of the Federal Apology for forced adoption practices

Today, 21 March 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of the Apology by Julia Gillard, on behalf of the Australian Government, for forced adoption practices.

We acknowledge the pain and suffering caused by those practices and remember all those who have been impacted, whether their child was taken through a forced adoption, they are a child who was removed through forced adoption, or the close family members of them.

We also remember and congratulate those who fought so hard for the apology and wider recognition and all of those who fought and continue to fight for justice.
