community consultation

OHPI was invited to participate in a community consultation on RDA organised by the Australian Human Rights Commission in Melbourne.

The Consultation was spearheaded by the Race Discrimination Commissioner at the AHRC Tim Soutphommasane, and was attended by many government and non-government organisations working in the field of community relations.

OHPI took the opportunity to highlight how cyberracism was the last medium of racism and discrimination. We shared experiences of serious threats and violence made against OHPI simply because of our stand against online hate in Australian society. We also highlighted the role AHRC can play in facilitating networking between the different organisations working in the field to combat hate, communal disharmony and discrimination.
