Community Reporting Tool online at local councils

Reducing Racism is a new project that engages Victoria’s African and Muslim communities to help them understand their rights and how to exercise them and make it easier for them to report racism.

Our consultations with members of African and Muslim communities have revealed several recurring themes:

  • Racism is a significant issue
  • There are barriers preventing people from connecting with us
  • People don’t know enough about their rights and how to find help

We've worked alongside the Victorian Local Government Multicultural Issues Network (VLGMIN) to promote the pilot of a new community reporting tool that makes it easier for culturally and linguistically diverse groups – particularly members of African and Muslim communities – to make reports about racism and discrimination to the Commission.

To date, the participating councils include:

  • Benalla Rural City Council
  • City of Darebin
  • Glen Eira City Council
  • Moreland City Council
  • Maribyrnong City Council
  • Yarra City Council
