The North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah is proud to have joined forces with some of Australia’s leading businesses, sporting bodies, and NGO’s to support the national “Racism. It Stops With Me” campaign.
Our organisation has committed to preventing racism by pledging to undertake activities in support of the campaign. Racism is never acceptable and we all have a responsibility to stand up against it.
The campaign, which is being led by the Australian Human Rights Commission, has been developed by a partnership of government and non-government agencies.
Stuart Cameron, President of the Museum, said that the Museum Committee joined the “Racism. It Stops With Me” campaign because it believes that every organisation should actively work against racial discrimination and abuse. It is part of operating within a culturally diverse and multi-racial community.
Research from 2018 shows that one in five surveyed Australians say they experienced racial discrimination in the past 12 months. Research has also shown that one in three Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have experienced verbal racial abuse in the past 6 months.
The “Racism. It Stops With Me” campaign welcomes organisational and individual supporters. For more information about the campaign go to: http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.au/
