The annual Mapping Social Cohesion report was released today.
The research shows a very slight drop in the number of people who say they have been a victim of racial abuse in the past 12 months, remaining at around 14% (that’s 1 in 7 people).
It also shows that 44% of people think the level of racial prejudice in Australia is higher now than it was five years ago. All the more reason why All Together Now’s work is needed!
Earlier this week we gave a presentation at The Body Shop’s annual retail managers’ conference in Melbourne. There was so much enthusiasm and energy for All Together Now’s work, and indeed for all their charity partners.
We made this 40-second film for the managers to summarise our Give Racism The Finger work together earlier this year:
