In June 2021, the Victorian Government established a new Anti-Racism Taskforce (External link) (the Taskforce) to guide the development of a new state-wide Anti-Racism Strategy (the Strategy) that aims to reduce racism in Victoria.
The Taskforce comprises a mix of MPs, representatives from the Victorian Multicultural Commission and Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, and community members including eleven individuals selected through an open recruitment process, two young people and two Aboriginal people to ensure the voices of these groups are listened to in the formation of the Strategy.
The scope of the Taskforce will consider evidence and provide advice on the different ways in which racism occurs, where it occurs, and identify leading practice responses to effectively respond to and reduce the prevalence of racism.
