Racism. It Stops With Me.

logo

The Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing has just signed up for the Australian Human Rights Commission’s ‘Racism. It Stops With Me’ campaign.

To support the campaign, we have pledged to undertake activities over the next three years that will prevent racism within the aged care sector and we are proud to support the initiative.

The campaign website features the National Anti-Racism Strategy which has also been translated into 26 different languages. View the Strategy in English and in 26 languages here.

The national campaign, which has been developed through a partnership of government and non-government agencies, will run until 2015. For more information, visit http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.au.
