Racism. It Stops With Me asks organisations in Australia to pledge their commitment to tolerance and anti-racism by becoming formal campaign supporters. We currently have several hundred supporters across business, sport, education, community organisations and local government.
It doesn't matter if you’re already active in the anti-racism space or are completely new to this area. Any organisation can pledge their support!
What does signing up involve?
Supporter organisations agree to endorse the campaign message, promote the campaign and identify specific activities they will undertake in the anti-racism space.
Within these areas, the options are entirely flexible depending on your organisation’s resources and priorities. Examples of what you could do range from putting up posters in your workplace or displaying the campaign logo in your email signature, to asking staff members or people in the community to make personal pledges against racism, to implementing anti-racism policies, running training in your workplace or holding awareness-raising events.
And remember we're here to help you! We can provide advice on what your organisation can do as part of your support, promote your activities and events through our networks and provide you with resources, merchandise and information. Take a look out our resources page for more information.
What signing-up doesn't involve
Signing-up does not involve a financial commitment to the Strategy or campaign and does not require you to adopt a specific policy, program or activity. The Commission will not audit your activities or require you to report on what you are doing.
The Commission is unable to provide grants for supporter activities. Grant programs may be available to you through our partner agencies, such as the Department of Social Services: https://www.dss.gov.au/grants/grant-programmes
