The Australian Human Rights Commission is inviting submissions to inform the development of a National Anti-Racism Framework (the Framework).

The Framework will be a long-term, central reference point to guide actions on anti-racism and equality by government, NGOs, business, communities, and other sectors.

The Commission is very interested to hear from those with expertise and knowledge of anti-racism initiatives and in responding to racism at structural, institutional, and inter-personal levels, including:

  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander knowledge holders and community members with lived experience of racism
  • Community members from migrant, refugee and/or faith-based backgrounds with lived experience of racism
  • Representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak or community organisations
  • Representatives from a migrant, refugee, settlement and faith-based peak or community organisation
  • Representatives of Commonwealth, State and Local Government agencies and departments
  • Representatives of human rights agencies, advocacy organisations or legal practitioners
  • Practitioners and/or experts in the identified outcome areas of the Framework
  • Researchers in the identified outcome areas of the Framework.

The Commission released a Concept Paper, which details proposed principles, outcomes and strategies for the Framework. It has also compiled a Submissions Guide, which provides more information on the Framework development process and shares findings from early stakeholder consultations. 

The Commission invites submissions in any language and in any format, including writing, audio, video and images, subject to its Submissions Policy. You can fill out the guided submission form and/or upload your own file as a submission.
