The Race Discrimination Commissioner is undertaking a project to listen to and share the stories of Australian Muslims. He is holding national consultations with members of the Australian Muslim community about their needs and experiences of discrimination, Islamophobia and hate speech and their right to safely practice their religion.

The project is an opportunity to identify community strengths, concerns and priorities and hear from the community about ideas for change.

The national face-to-face consultations will be supported by a national online survey of Australian Muslims aimed at collecting data about Islamophobia, racism and related intolerances.

The project aims to build robust intelligence about the experience of Australian Muslims to inform the Australian Human Rights Commission’s work in promoting social cohesion and providing evidence for change.
