Kathy and CSOs

WE believe everyone is entitled to feel they belong.

But sadly we are aware racism, including in country South Australian communities, continues to prevent people from equal opportunities and outcomes.

Monday, March 21, marked the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, also known as Harmony Day.

This year, at ac.care we focused throughout Harmony Week on stepping up our commitment to challenging racism and promoting equality, engaging staff at all levels across our regions, sites and services.

As part of this commitment, we became supporters of the national Racism. It Stops With Me campaign, headed by the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Since 1966, March 21 has marked the anniversary of the 1960 police killings of 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa.

It reflects a recognition by nations around the globe of the ongoing need to actively address and eliminate racial discrimination.

As we reflected on the significance of the date, we committed to learning more, listening, challenging racism in our workplaces, communities and homes and creating a society that is fair and equal for all.

Together, we all recognise racism can only be addressed by all of us learning and taking action.

Racism. It Stops With Me.
