The Black Lives Matter movement has given way to opening up conversations about racism that's experienced around the world, and Australia does not miss coming under the microscope. Hosted by Peter Khalil, Federal Labor Member for Wills, join the online panel on Racism & Identity in Australia on Wednesday 12 August 2020 from 6-7pm. RSVP is essential, so please REGISTER YOUR INTEREST HERE.
Australia celebrates its multicultural backgrounds and diverse community in a big way with many events. Yet, we know that racism still lurks and it would be amiss to think it doesn't raise its ugly head time and again. It's experienced on a daily basis by Indigenous Australians and Australians from migrant backgrounds. This panel confronts talking about racism in Australia honestly in order to move forward.
Speakers for the event are Professor Marcia Langton AM, an anthropologist and geographer and has held the Foundation Chair of Australian Indigenous Studies at the University of Melbourne since 2000. Dr Anne Aly is another of three speakers and is the Federal Labour Member for Cowan and the first Muslim woman to be elected into the Australian Parliament. Ahmed Hassan is a leader in Melbourne's multicultural community and is the co-founder and Executive Director of Youth Activating Youth.
