INVITATION

Forced Adoption Practices APOLOGY
Day of Recognition Launch

When – 10.30am, Thursday 18th September 2014

Where – Parkes Room, Parliament House

This Saturday, 20th September 2014 will be the second anniversary of the NSW Parliament’s Apology for Forced Adoption Practices.

On 11th September 2014, the Legislative Council supported my motion calling for continued redress in relation to forced adoptions.
The motion included a call to declare an annual Day of Recognition, to ensure that the past is not forgotten.

I invite you to come along and hear more about the issue from people who have been part of the movement for change, and who were affected by the practices of the past.

Guest speakers include:
 Ann Symonds, former Chair of the Legislative Council Standing Committee on Social Issues

 Dr Christine Cole, Apology Alliance
 Kerrie Saint, Association for Adoptees Incorporated
