National Reconciliation Week
Reconciliation Tasmania will be bringing two special guests to our breakfasts, who are both brave change makers.
Signatory to the Uluru Statement from the Heart, tireless campaigner for Enshrinement of the Voice and author of Finding Our Heart and other books, Thomas Mayor is growing voice for First Nations Australians. Hailing from the Torres Strait and the Northern Territory, Thomas speaks with passion on Voice, Treaty and Truth, and how greater recognition of First Nations Australians will be a catalyst for the growth of our nation.
Joining Thomas is the 2022 Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year, Kaytlyn Thomas. As a palawa woman growing up in remote NW Tasmania, Kaytlyn experienced many “cultural struggles” as she sought to connect with her Aboriginal heritage and identity. Now an emerging singer-songwriter and university science student , Kaytlyn is also a passionate advocate for First Nations youth recognition and rights and cultural education in schools.
With our passionate special guests and a program led and delivered by First Nations Tasmanians, you won’t want to miss RT’s NRW Breakfast Program this year. We’ve listened to the feedback we received from our 2021 participant survey and have made positive changes .
Make a commitment to reconciliation action this year for yourself, family, friends and colleagues. Be Brave, Make Change
