#RacismNOTWelcome is a grassroots movement. An anti-racism campaign driven by local communities, organisations, businesses and Councils.

The movement is growing into one of the most important social justice campaigns ever seen in Australia. 

Where did the anti-racism street signs originate?

Initiated by the Inner West Multicultural Network in partnership with Addi Road, the #RacismNOTWelcome campaign was launched by the Inner West Council in November 2020 with the installation of #RacismNOTwelcome street signs in the community, along with videos, an art exhibition and public forums.

537 councils across Australia support #RacismNOTwelcome 

In June 2021, a national endorsement for the campaign was won at the Australian Local Government Association conference in Canberra – an organisation representing 537 local councils across the country – in a unanimous and historic vote.

Now the work really begins for all of Australia

We must act now on this desire for change and ensure every council erects the #RacismNOTWelcome street signs – and speaks in unity to say there is no corner of this country where we accept racism.
