Racism: It Stops with Me.

“Racism. It stops with me” is a campaign which invites all Australians to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens. It is an initiative of the federal government’s National Anti-Racism Strategy, which was launched in August 2012.

The campaign aims to:
1.         Ensure more Australians recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community
2.         Give more Australians the tools & resources to take practical action against racism
3.         Empower individuals & organisations to prevent & respond effectively to racism.

Over 100 organisations, including the Australian Olympic Team, now support the campaign. A full list  of supporters, as well as more information about the campaign, can be found at: http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.au/ 

Olympians Sally Pearson and Liz Cambage are proud supporters of the campaign.
