Victoria’s rich cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths as a state. Our laws protect you from discrimination and vilification because of your race or your religion. No one should be treated unfairly because of where they come from, how they look or the language they speak. The Commission engages with people from multicultural and multifaith backgrounds to build a greater awareness of human rights and equality.
