Griffith University is supporting the Australian Human Rights Commission's RACISM. IT STOPS WITH ME campaign. The campaign promotes awareness and encourages everyone to see what they can do as an individual, or as an organisation to help eradicate racism.
The Commission hopes to create a culture where people are able to identify racism and have the confidence and tools to act appropriately when it does occur.
A message from the Commissioner
I commend Griffith University for taking a stand against bigotry and racism. Through your support for “Racism. It Stops with Me”, you are joining a network of other Australian universities, businesses, and sporting and community organisations that have pledged their support for racial tolerance. You are also sending a powerful message of leadership. Our educational institutions and communities are better places when everyone can feel that they belong. Saying no to racism is about saying yes to decency and a fair go. I look forward to working with Griffith University, and you can count on the support and solidarity of the Australian Human Rights Commission.
Dr Tim Soutphommasane
Race Discrimination Commissioner
