The Hodgman Liberal Government congratulates the Tasmanian group Students Against Racism for winning the inaugural ‘Racism. It Stops With Me’ award at the Australian Human Rights Awards in Sydney.
The award recognises an organisation that has made an extraordinary contribution to reducing or preventing racism in Australia, and is a fantastic accolade and recognition for Students Against Racism for their work in promoting racial harmony in Tasmania.
The organisation was started in 2008 by students who came to Australia as refugees and migrants and, with their teachers help, they developed a dramatic presentation titled Living in Between that explains why they left their homelands, their journey to Australia and their lives now.
The award is a credit to everyone involved and is a great example of the fantastic work being done in our community by many young Tasmanians.
