Do you remember May 28, 2000 when hundreds of thousands of Australians walked across bridges around the country to show their support for reconciliation?

Did you catch the packed train that went down from the Blue Mountains to join the walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge?

To mark the 20th anniversary, Blue Mountains People for Reconciliation/BMANTaR are holding a virtual bridge walk on May 28 at 4pm via Zoom.

They are inviting people to join and share stories of their walk and participation in bridge walks in May 2000. To join register at: bridgew20@gmail.com.

"We will also use the opportunity to reflect on where we are now in this journey for reconciliation," said a spokeswoman.

"The 2020 National Reconciliation Week theme is In this Together, a timely reminder that reconciliation is a journey for all Australians - as individuals, families, communities, organisations and, importantly, as a nation."
