Have you experienced discrimination as an Aboriginal, Torres Strait, Black and / or Women of Colour?

You are not alone. We need to hear your voice. We

 need to send our many voices policymakers and

 show it’s reality. 

Why reporting is important?

Many cases of racism are not being reported, making the issue seem smaller than the reality. Our research shows reports are not being made for many reasons. Such as feared backlash or not being sure it is worth reporting.


We need to send our many voices to policy makers to show them the reality of racism for change. Racism happens in many forms. Subtle, direct, structural.

Aboriginal & Torres Strait, Black and Women of Colour Safe Space

The team listening are a community who have their own experiences of racism. We understand the emotional labour of reporting, so we provide a guide with next steps at the end. Your data will be anonymous and secure.
