Submission: Inquiry into Racial Vilification
18 March 2022
ACTCOSS made a submission to the Education and Community Inclusion Committee inquiry into racial vilification. Our submission calls for the ACT Government to address structural racism through the resourcing and implementation of oversight mechanisms and cultural education across government programs and services. While we acknowledge the serious impact of casual racism, we believe that it is enabled and reinforced by structural racism across services and systems such as justice, child protection, housing, health, employment and education.
