Stop it – Change starts with you. If you recognise yourself in our Invisible Discriminator campaign video, educate yourself about the impact of racial discrimination.
Learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history can also help improve understanding and generate respect.
Intervene as a bystander
If you witness racial discrimination, there are a number of things you can do to intervene. The Human Rights Commissions campaign ‘Racism. It stops with me.’ has some great resources to educate and arm you with the strategies you need to stand up to racism.
