International Day for the Elimination of Racism

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is marked on 21 March. These days, in Australia, we mark this day as Harmony Day. This helps us to appreciate the benefits of a multicultural Australia, but it can also ignore the hard questions about how racism still exists in Australia and effects the lives of many people. We provide some information on how you can challenge racism in society.
