Racism. It Stops With Me.

9 Jul. 2015

CRANAplus is proud to have joined forces with some of Australia’s lead­ing busi­ness­es, sport­ing bod­ies and NGO’s to sup­port the Racism. It stops with me” campaign.

This nation­al cam­paign has been devel­oped through a part­ner­ship of gov­ern­ment and non-gov­ern­ment agen­cies and organisations.

Research from 2011 revealed that one in sev­en Aus­tralians said they had expe­ri­enced dis­crim­i­na­tion because of their colour or back­ground, a fig­ure that has been increas­ing steadi­ly in recent years. Research has also shown 70 per­cent of peo­ple agree that Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Islander and non-Indige­nous peo­ple are prej­u­diced against each other. 

In order to address the bar­ri­ers to racial equal­i­ty in Aus­tralia, we need lead­er­ship from all sec­tions of the com­mu­ni­ty,” said Pro­fes­sor Gillian Trig­gs, Pres­i­dent of the Aus­tralian Human Rights Com­mis­sion and Act­ing Race Dis­crim­i­na­tion Com­mis­sion­er. I am delight­ed that we have received such strong encour­age­ment from our supporters.”
