Race Discrimination Commissioner Dr Tim Soutphommasane has warned of emerging threats to social cohesion and “serious concerns” about a “deterioration of community harmony”.
The Lowitja Institute has announced that it will be holding a symposium on racism and child and youth health between the 26-27 of June in Melbourne. All are welcome to attend.
This symposium aims to create discussion and action across policy, practice, research and community contexts to:
- Raise awareness and advance understanding of how racism continues to adversely affect the lives of children and youth;
- Develop long term strategies to prevent racism and support those children and young people impacted by its negative effects.
