Racism. It stops with me

Knox City Council is an official supporter of the RACISM. IT STOPS WITH ME campaign. Racism takes many forms and can happen in many places.

About RACISM. IT STOPS WITH ME

RACISM. IT STOPS WITH ME campaign is part of the National Anti-Racism Strategy. It was launched in 2012 by the Australian Government.

The National Anti-Racism Strategy aims to help Australians understand:

  • what racism and discrimination is
  • how racism and discrimination can be prevented
  • how racism and discrimination can be reduced.

The Campaign aims to:

  • ensure more Australians recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community
  • give more Australians the tools and resources to take practical action against racism
  • empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism.

What you can do to fight racism

Step in and stand up against racism. It shows the target that you don’t support racist behaviour toward them or anyone else.

It is a powerful sign of support. It also makes the perpetrator think twice about what they are saying or doing.

Extra support and resources

These tips for bystanders show how everyone can play a role in preventing racism.
