We?re here to say that – whether displayed online or on the street; whether through the cultural glass ceiling, or the systemic disadvantage experienced by our First Peoples – racism exists in Australia.
– Helen Szoke, Race Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission, 2012.


Through our own lived experiences and through the work we do in our communities, RISE has long recognised a need for anti-racism education that goes beyond individual-focused cultural awareness and tolerance-based training models to address the systemic and structured ways that racism manifests in our daily work and personal lives.


Starting in March?2013, RISE will be running? antiracism?training?for the staff and/or volunteers of organisations that service communities of colour.


We aim to provide participants with techniques to identify and combat?racism?within institutional, organisational and interpersonal settings. Workshops will be delivered in the Melbourne CBD.
