This resource is tailored to young people who are starting to think about important human rights-related matters, like race discrimination.

We know that many First Nations children and those from culturally and linguistically diverse communities can identify personal experiences of racism from a very young age. Instead of denying racism, or claiming that we don’t see race, we need to acknowledge that for many First Nations people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, race is not something that can or should be forgotten or ignored. 

We need to talk to children – early and often – about the role of race and racism in society.
