Understanding your rights and taking action against racism

About this Event

The Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) unequivocally condemn racism.

To educate and empower multicultural and multifaith communities in Victoria, the VMC and VEOHRC have come together to run a series of information sessions.

This session is a general session and open to all Victorians of culturally diverse backgrounds.

Participating in this session will provide you with information to better understand and exercise your rights if you or someone you know experiences racism, religious discrimination, or racial or religious vilification.

You will also learn how to recognise racism, how to report it and where to seek advice and support.

We’ll cover

• What does discrimination, vilification and victimisation mean?

• Where to get help and advice

• How to report racism

• Why reporting racism is important

• How to take action against racism

Who should attend?

This session is open to Victorians of culturally diverse backgrounds seeking to understand their rights with regards to racism, religious discrimination, or racial or religious vilification.


All participants must register to attend this session.


This session will be delivered as a webinar with questions from participants facilitated through a Q&A function.
