Racism. It Stops With Me |

Racism has no place in Australia.

Join us in taking a stand.

Racism. It Stops With Me is a national campaign that provides tools and resources to help people and organisations learn about racism and stand against it by acting for positive change.

Learn and support

A renewed focus on racial equality arising from the #BlackLivesMatter protests and COVID-related racism has prompted people and organisations to ask, ‘how can we help make change?’ Follow the links to learn more about racism, respond effectively when racism occurs, be a good ally, and act for positive change.

The Racism. It Stops With Me campaign has developed resources to support organisations, schools, students and advocates in opposing racism and contributing towards a more inclusive society.

Commissioner’s message

Australian people value equality, fairness and opportunity for all, which is why we cannot tolerate racism within our community.

But racism does still exist. It comes in many forms and happens in many places.

It can be easy to ignore, or to think it’s not worth the trouble of responding - but that attitude helps make racism more acceptable.

We all have a responsibility to stand against racism. We must all say no to prejudice and discrimination – together, with a united voice.

That’s why we say…
Racism. It Stops With Me.

Our Vision is for First Nations Gender Justice and Equality in Australia. We elevate First Nations women’s voices, knowing that they hold the solutions to drive transformative change.

Led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, June Oscar AO, Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women's Voices) is a multi-year Report and project set out to capture and respond to the rights, needs and aspirations of First Nations women and girls. It is the first time since the 1986 Women’s Business Report that First Nations women and girls have been heard as a collective. 

Informed by over 2,000 First Nations women and girls, Wiyi Yani U Thangani is a once in a generation Report, providing a well overdue gender-lens across all aspects of life, showing that women are doing the backbone work of society.

On every page are the stories of women and girls—their strengths, wealth of knowledges and culture, and how to overcome entrenched issues and inequalities and create futures we all dream of.  Wiyi Yani U Thangani provides the evidence that the inequalities experienced by First Nations women and girls are perpetuated and entrenched by mainstream systems and structures that have marginalised the voices of women and girls for generations. First Nations women and girls are clear: we need large-scale structural change to create a world where the unique cultural, social, economic and political rights and interests of First Nations women and girls are realised. We need First Nations gender justice and equality.
