Sending a clear message – Being a part of this campaign sends a strong message to our community that we support its cultural diversity and we, as a community, will bear no tolerance for racism.

Creating a network of partners and supporters taking action against racism

Led by the Federal Race Discrimination Commissioner, partnership members, supporters and the public are actively encouraged to drive constructive and meaningful discussion about racism and how to counter it at the national and local level.

A key component of the NARPS is a nationwide public awareness anti-racism campaign, Racism. It Stops with Me.  The campaign aims to:

  • ensure Australians recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community
  • give Australians the tools and resources to take practical action against racism, and
  • empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism.

The campaign received more than 1.5 million view on television and online. Click here to watch:
