Closing the gap

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has used a landmark speech at ANU to call for a greater commitment to Close the Gap on Indigenous disadvantage in Australia, demonstrating his own commitment with a further personal donation the National Apology Foundation.

Mr Rudd, speaking on the ninth anniversary of his historic apology to Indigenous Australians for policies which led to the Stolen Generation, said national and state governments needed to work more closely together to Close the Gap.
