The Australian Human Rights Commission has launched a plan to develop a National Anti-Racism Framework. The Framework will be a long-term, central reference point to guide actions on anti-racism by government, NGOs, business, educators, health professionals, police, other justice authorities, civil society, and the community.

A Commission Concept Paper provides an initial overview of the Framework’s key principles, outcomes and strategies. The Commission is working with all levels of Government, peak bodies, human rights agencies and community organisations to progress the Framework.

The Commission is accepting public submissions on the Framework from 21 October to 4 February  2022. If you or your organisation would like to make a submission, please visit the Have your say page where you can complete the guided form or upload your submission. The Commission is accepting submissions in writing as well as video or audio formats, in any language.

The Commission is also undertaking a series of targeted scoping consultations, workshops and roundtables. If your organisation is interested in participating in this process, please contact the Commission at .

The findings of consultations and the submissions process will inform a revised Framework Concept Paper and a Consultation Report, to be released in June 2022.
