Australia’s racial vilification laws haven’t changed in 30 years prompting a parliamentary Inquiry into Hate Crime and Serious Vilification.
The clever idea
Ensure the voices of all Australians are heard. We launched ‘Be Heard’ a powerful, multifaceted campaign executed through earned media, paid social, brand experience, content creation and stakeholder engagement. Be Heard encouraged Australians of diverse backgrounds to use their voice, share their experiences with racial vilification and influence the Inquiry and ultimately create a safer Australia for all.
