#RacismNOTWelcome

Racism isn't welcome in Woollahra!

We've signed up to support the #racismnotwelcome campaign, acknowledging the existence of racism, encouraging conversations about it, and demonstrating there's no place for it in Australia. Thanks to Councillor Luise Elsing (spiceylulu) for spearheading the campaign: she's pictured here with Mayor susanwynne.

You may notice new signs on a street near you. We're installing 12 across the area. And as part of the initiative, woollahralibraries is hosting an online talk with community and business leaders about racism in the pandemic world. We're also offering online anti-racism training developed by the aushumanrights. Find out more at the link in our bio.

As of today, street signs declaring #RacismNotWelcome are being erected at key locations across Sydney’s Inner West.

It’s part of a bold new anti-racist campaign devised by the Inner West Multicultural Network in partnership with Addison Road Community Organisation.

Inner West Multicultural Network (IWMN) is an independent network of government and non-government service providers and organisations that works with, advocates for, and supports people from multicultural communities to achieve a just and equal society. Addison Road Community Organisation (Addi Road) plays a leading role in the IWMN.

Last November, independent Councillor Pauline Lockie brought a motion to Inner West Council to secure its endorsement of the #RacismNotWelcome campaign, with the street signs as a major element in raising community awareness and involvement in tackling racism.

The Inner West Multicultural Network developed the #RacismNotWelcome campaign in response to a worrying increase in racist attacks in our community during 2020.

Speakers who stood in support of the #RacismNotWelcome campaign motion included Addi Road Directors, Dr Julianna Jamaluddin and Gladys Namokoyi (hip hop artist Kween G); Addi Road Ambassador Craig Foster; and Inner West Councillors Pauline Lockie and Sam Iskander.

Thanks to their contribution – and that of many others – the motion was successfully carried, and #RacismNotWelcome street signs are now being installed. It’s worth hearing directly from these speakers [please click on link below] to get a genuine sense of the importance of the #RacismNotWelcome campaign.

We believe what we are doing in the Inner West will be a source of inspiration to people all over Australia and the world. We are already seeing similar moves in across the country, as our fellow advocates and activists lobby their local councils to join us in a grassroots community campaign that declares #RacismNotWelcome in Australia.

When the Brits decided to set up camp and declare Australia as theirs (despite 50,000 years of continuous occupancy by the locals), one of the names they tossed around for Sydney was Albion. The invading Romans called England Albion (trans. white land) when they saw the cliffs of Dover.
Imagine calling a place inhabited by black people as “white land”.
There are some reminders of that past, for example, Albion Way in Sydney’s Surry Hills.

The #RacismNotWelcome campaign is a community-led, grassroots initiative intended to acknowledge the existence of racism, validate people’s lived experiences with racism and normalise conversations about racism whilst igniting change.

The Inner West Multicultural Network decided that more needed to be done to provide a safe platform for people to speak out, to normalise discussion about racism at a community level and to help communities fight racism together.

An important element is the erection of #RacismNotWelcome street signs in every Local Council across the country as a public demonstration that it is no longer hidden, taboo and left to fester, but is acknowledged, called out, and not welcome.

These signs are the physical manifestation of the underlying principle that racism exists, it is real, damaging and deeply harmful to many Australians and that we all have a responsibility to confront it, every day. The permanency of the street signs shows that this campaign is here to stay until we see real change and ensures that this issue cannot be swept under the rug anymore.
