Centre for Multicultural Youth and Australian National University invite you to a lunchtime webinar and launch of our recent report on young Victorians’ experiences of racism during COVID-19.
About this Event
Mr Josh Bull MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Youth and Multicultural Affairs, will join us to launch the report, followed by a conversation with experts to discuss how experiences of racism are impacting our community, and what more we must do to address this.
Findings of our June survey of young Victorians revealed:
- 89% of all respondents had at least one experience of vicarious racism.
- 85% of participants from multicultural backgrounds had at least one experience of direct discrimination during this period.
- Despite the reported frequency of experiences of vicarious and direct racism, less than one in three (29%) talked with friends or family about it and only 6% reported their experiences.
This event will explore the findings in depth, hear from young people with lived experiences, and look at mental health and impacts of life in ‘lockdown’ for young multicultural Victorians.
