In 2014, BeyondBlue and TNS Social Research surveyed young Australians between 25-44 about their attitudes towards Indigenous Australians. The campaign revealed the shocking extent of discrimination against Indigenous Australians among young Australians. They received over 1000 online responses.
From these surveys, it is clear that discrimination against Indigenous Australians is as prevalent as ever. The research found that racism against Indigenous Australians is everywhere – in the workplace, on public transport, even in everyday conversation. It is now more important than ever to help prevent these kinds of issues from continuing into Australia’s future.
At All Together Now, we have made an infographic based on the findings of this campaign on racism. Please share and like this infographic to help us get the message out there – that discrimination against Indigenous Australians needs to stop.
