The racialised narrative surrounding Covid-19 has sparked a surge in racial abuse targeting People of Colour.
Whether it’s a new poll finding almost one third of Australians blame the Chinese community for the pandemic. Or a study by the Migrant Worker Justice Initiative revealing a quarter of Australia’s international students faced racial abuse during the pandemic. Or an Asian Australian Alliance survey collecting more than 500 stories from people of colour of coronavirus-related racial abuse within a few months.
People of Colour are experiencing a surge of racially motivated attacks. That’s why we’re launching regular Resisting Racism workshops to further equip People of Colour with the skills, strategy & community to be powerful changemakers.
This free 3 hour interactive online workshop will cover the fundamentals of advocacy for people of colour, including:
Campaign strategy: what is a campaign, campaign strategy overview, how to create a winning strategy, difference between strategy & tactics
Strategic communications: messaging, framing, communication frameworks
Organising: building power through people
Digital: using digital tools to create change
Self-care techniques to deepen personal resilience to racism
Participants will leave with the foundational tools to change hearts, minds, public policy and corporate behaviour in a moment of increased racial abuse targeting People of Colour.
This workshop is free and open to people who identify as First Nations, Black or a Person of Colour.
Special thanks to the City of Sydney whose generous support has made these workshops possible.
