Proposed amendments to the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 Submission to the Exposure Draft

Racism can pervade many aspects of people’s lives, be experienced at any age, and its effects can be intergenerational and long-lasting. Racism can occur at the individual level or can be institutional or systemic. Institutional racism can happen in government agencies, organisations and corporations that create policy and/or provide services like health care, education and housing. Institutional racism can be more subtle and harder to identify than individual racism.
