TFA Supports ‘It Stops With Me’ Campaign

first_imgTouch Football Australia (TFA) is pleased to be joining the campaign to fight racism through the ‘It Stops With Me’ National Anti-Racism Strategy launched by the Australian Human Rights Commission in 2012. TFA joins many sporting organisations supporting the campaign, committing to play a visible role by taking a public stance against racism in the community.The purpose of the campaign is to ensure more Australian’s recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community; give more Australians, at an individual and organisation level, the tools and resources to take practical action against racism; and empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism where it may happen. Over the next three years, the National Anti-Racism Strategy will focus on five key priority areas: schools and higher education, the media, government service provision, workplaces and the internet.This Strategy calls on all members of the Australian community to work towards eradicating the barriers to equality that result from racism. Ultimately, racism stops because of the actions we take individually and collectively. We all have a role to play in taking action against racism wherever we see it and supporting initiatives to stop it from happening.For more information about the ‘Racism – It Stops With Me’ campaign or to sign up as supporter, please visit the following website – http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.auRelated Links‘It Stops With Me’ Campaignlast_img
