About the campaign

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.

This is entirely voluntary and is only encouraged if you feel safe and comfortable to share your story.

The ideal format would be a short (2 mins or less) video or audio recording. However if you are not comfortable with that please send your testimonial in text format.

#RacismNotWelcome is a grass roots, community movement to normalise discussion about the racism too many Australians experience every day, and to encourage learning about institutional racism, historic barriers and lived experiences

To provide visibility to unheard voices, hear from experts, acknowledge the truth, commit to change

An important element is these street signs for every Local Council across Australia

We’re not just talking inclusion or diversity which, as important as they are, can become tools to avoid the underlying reality of racial discrimination, but attacking racism itself by listening, hearing, learning, acknowledging, changing

innerwestcouncil and waverleycouncil have led the way, more to follow & info at addiroad
