Why We Do It
As a Harm Prevention charity acknowledging that racism is a form of abuse, our mission is to “Educate Australians About Racism”. We do that by imagining and delivering innovative and evidence-based projects that promote racial equity and provide Australians with information about racism’s impacts and ways in which we can effectively challenge racism.
As an organisation seeking systemic and behavioural change, our work seeks depth rather than breadth, producing programs that create sustainable, long-term change helping in achieving our vision of a racially equitable Australia.

Who our projects support
All Together Now’s research, publications and projects on media racism have sought to challenge the way the mainstream media racialises First Australians and culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
All Together Now’s research and training on far-right extremism with youth workers, teachers and other frontline workers has sought to prevent more young people from becoming involved in extremism.

How we do it?
We’ve designed solutions based on systems-level change. All the work that All Together Now undertakes acknowledges systemic racism at its core. The organisation believes that it is the system of white supremacy that ensures racism flourishes in Australia and acknowledges that racist behaviours are symptoms of systemic racism. All Together Now recognises that the media plays a powerful role in setting conversations, which is why it has been monitoring the mainstream media for racialised discourse since 2016.
