Get Support

If you have been discriminated against because of your race or ethnicity, you have the option of speaking to the anti-racism lead. You can talk to them about what happened and receive information about what your options are and how to access more support. The anti-racism lead will be able to help you understand your options and give you an overview of the next steps you may consider taking.

Give Support

If you witness someone experiencing racism or racial intimidation, the best way to intervene is to approach the person being victimized and engage them in conversation. Stay close to them and ask them if they need support or what kind of support you can give them. Stay with them until the person threatening them goes away.

Be involved

In challenging racism in your community. Ask, speak up and stand by for victim even if you feel it does not affect you. Don’t encourage racist behaviour by laughing along or being complacent, this makes you just as responsible.

Be Inclusive. Being as inclusive as possible will open you up to new people and places. You will have a deeper understanding of different cultures and the opportunity to gain more friends.
