The Forgotten Australians Action Group has organised a petition for a Royal Commission for Forgotten Australians.
Specifically, the petition states:
We the people call on the various State and the Federal governments for a royal commission into the care of 500,000 children who were institutionalised, placed in orphanages and also in foster care during the period of the 1920’s to the 1990’s.
Further information about the petition may be found here.
