Yarra is committed to creating a community where people feel safe and respected and where diversity is celebrated.
We are a culturally diverse community with 29% of our residents born overseas. Our multiculturalism adds to Yarra’s unique character and makes our city a vibrant place to live, work and visit.
As part of our commitment to diversity, we’re proud to be a part of an alliance of businesses, sporting bodies, non-government organisations and local councils across Australia who support the Racism. It Stops With Me campaign since 2013.
Racism. It Stops With Me is a national anti-racism campaign run by the Australian Human Rights Commission. It’s one of many campaigns and initiatives working to increase awareness of racism and provide tools to address it.
The Australian Human Rights Commission launched a new phase of the campaign last month that calls on Australians who don’t have lived experience of racism to reflect on its causes and do more to challenge it.
