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 three 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.
