Racism: Understanding your rights & taking action - South Asian communities

The Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) unequivocally condemn racism.

To educate and empower multicultural and multifaith communities in Victoria, the VMC and VEOHRC have come together to run a series of information sessions.

This session is for Asian communities and will be opened by the Asian Australian Lawyers Association.

Participating in this session will provide you with information to better understand and exercise your rights if you or someone you know experiences racism, religious discrimination, or racial or religious vilification.

You will also learn how to recognise racism, how to report it and where to seek advice and support.

We’ll cover

• What does discrimination, vilification and victimisation mean?

• Where to get help and advice

• How to report racism

• Why reporting racism is important

• How to take action against racism

Who should attend?

This session is for Victorians from Asian backgrounds and has been designed to create a safe space for participants to contribute.
