Activism and Advocacy
It is always important to continue to advocate and work towards a more inclusive society. Whilst we do not work directly on advocacy campaigns, below are a list of organisations we are aware of advocating on the issue of racism. You may wish to explore them.
Note: this is not an exhaustive list. If you know of more campaigns with the intent to stop racism, please let us know.
Challenging Racism Project: This is the leading national research program on racism and anti-racism in Australia. It is a highly successful research collective based in the School of Social Sciences and Psychology at Western Sydney University. There is a wealth of research and resources available on their website.
Initiated by Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria (ECCV) this is a campaign to strengthen the foundations for a inclusive, socially cohesive and safe and vibrant Victoria, through a coalition of institutions and individuals to collaborate across sectors.
ECCV is a peak, national multicultural body representing Victorians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia (FECCA): This is a peak, national multicultural body representing Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
