The University of Wollongong has joined the Australian Human Rights Commission’s ‘Racism. It stops with me’ campaign to promote awareness and encourage everyone to see what they can do to help eradicate racism.
Racism stops because of the actions we take individually and collectively. We all have a role to play in taking action against racism wherever we see or hear it and supporting initiatives to stop it from happening. This campaign invites all Australians to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens.
