All Together Now will be taking part in Blog Action Day, which will be held on October 16. Blog Action Day brings together people from all across the world, so far there are 684 participants from 87 countries around the world, and counting.
How Blog Action Day works
Bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, photographers, graphic designers, cartoonish, data geeks, tumblers and social media types from all over the world take part in Blog Action Day. Blog Action Day is an free annual event, that has run since 2007. It’s aim is to unite the world’s bloggers by posting about the same issue, on the same day, in order to raise awareness and trigger a positive global discussion around an important issue that impacts us all, raises awareness or even funds for not-for-profits associated to the theme issue.
All Together Now has decided to take part in this years Blog Action Day because this year’s theme is inequality.
All Together Now works to eliminate racial inequalities found in Australian society and culture. To work towards this goal we believe there are some key important steps that need to be undertaken. They are:
- Awareness: educating people on what racism is, where it is found in Australian society and culture and how that racism is enacted by the population.
- Support: working together as a society to support those who are bringing racial equality to the forefront such as community groups, government initiatives and public and private companies.
- Platform: using social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, WordPress/blogs, and YouTube to discuss topics and garner support for positive action to end racial inequality.

By taking part in Blog Action Day 2014 All Together Now is taking another step in ending racial inequality.
