Event description
Understanding your rights and taking action against racism for young people

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 for young people and will be opened by Khayshie Tilak Ramesh, VMC Youth Commissioner and will include a short speech by a Centre for Multicultural Youth Shout Out speaker.

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
