WHY IS RECONCILIATION IMPORTANT?

Trustis extremely low;

Prejudiceis unacceptably high;

Substantial economic, education and heath gap

WITHOUT THE RIGHT ‘ENVIRONMENT’, PROGRESS ON CLOSING THE GAP TARGETS WILL CONTINUE TO BE SLOW

There has been some movement, but progress is very slow.

Reconciliation is about changing this context;

laying the foundations


TRUST IS LOW, BUT RELATIONSHIP IS IMPORTANT
