#RacismNOTWelcome is a grassroots movement. An anti-racism campaign driven by local communities, organisations, businesses and Councils.
It is growing into one of the most important social justice campaigns ever seen in Australia.
Initiated by the Inner West Multicultural Network in partnership with Addi Road, the 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.
Councils across Australia vote for change
In June 2021, national support for the campaign was won at the Australian Local Government Association conference in Canberra – an organisation representing 537 local councils across the country – there was a unanimous and historic vote endorsing the campaign.
Now the work really begins for all of Australia
We must act to mark this desire for change; and ensure that every council erects the #RacismNOTWelcome street signs – and speaks in unity to say there is no corner of this country where we accept racism.
