A study was released this morning, stating that 40% of non-Anglo or non-European students in government schools have experienced racial discrimination.
It’s also been proven that to overcome racist attitudes, it’s critical for young people to hear directly from those who may be different to them, in order to build empathy, understanding and acceptance.
That is why we applaud Nyadol Nyuon’s comments on ABC Melbourne this morning, with her thoughts on how while facing ingrained racist attitudes can be uncomfortable or difficult, it’s absolutely critical to address in order to improve as a society.
If your students need exposure, we represent a range of incredible speakers who can speak to students about race, discrimination and bullying.
