We are building a team to train & support their communities take action to end discrimination by police.
We’re seeking people aged 18-25 who:
- Have experienced discrimination or racial profiling by police
- Want to learn about civil and legal rights when stopped by police
- Are able to communicate well to groups of people
- Are willing to speak to others about your experiences
- Are able to commit to helping with at least two community workshops as a peer advocate over the next 12 months
We’ll provide training, support and will cover your expenses.
Training will cover the history of racial profiling in Australia and around the world, legal rights, law reform and strategies for ending discriminatory policing in Victoria.
As a team we will hold Know Your Rights workshops or forums with young people from Indigenous and migrant backgrounds across Melbourne. We’ll share stories and discuss ways to end racial profiling together.
Come along to this Information Night to find out more.
