Report racism

Victoria’s rich cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Regardless of where you’re from, what you look like, what you believe or what language you speak, no one should have to endure racism in the place they call home. We have created this hub as a one-stop shop to help people understand and combat racism.

 

This section provides an overview of how to report racism to the Commission.

Contact us

If you have a question about discrimination, sexual harassment, victimisation, or racial or religious vilification, we’re here to help.

Contact us for free and confidential information about your rights and Victoria’s equal opportunity and human rights laws. If we can’t answer your question, we’ll try to help you find a service that can.

If you wish to make a complaint in relation to the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities, find out more about your options.

Community Reporting Tool

If you have experienced racism, sexual harassment or discrimination of any kind, or if you have any human rights issues or concerns, then we want to hear from you. The Community Reporting Tool is a quick way to tell us what has happened, or what you are worried about.

You do not have to tell us your name but, if you want to, you can ask for someone at the Commission to contact you and try to help you.

We will not share your details with anyone else. We will keep your information private.

Support services

Sharing your experiences of racism, religious discrimination, or racial or religious vilification may be distressing, and it can help to have access to experienced support services.

We have prepared a support service and referral directory that is intended to help members of multicultural and multifaith communities find the support they need.
