Victorian Government's response to the inquiry into anti-vilification protections

On 2 September 2021, the Victorian Government responded to the Victorian Parliament's Legal and Social Issues Committee report on its inquiry into anti-vilification protections in Victoria. We are pleased to note the government's in-principle support for the committee's recommendations which, when implemented, will strengthen Victoria’s ability to prevent and respond to hate directed against people in our community.
