Everyday Racism outlines the experiences of racism South Australian refugee and migrant young people have explicitly raised with with the Commissioner in conversations and direct engagement with them. It also highlights young people’s ideas for preventing and actively challenging racism across a range of settings.

By reporting on these conversations the Commissioner’s aim is to increase our understanding of the impact racism and racial discrimination has on children and young people. The Commissioner seeks to open up a dialogue with decision makers that can support systemic improvements in the way communities, schools, workplaces, and sports clubs throughout South Australia address racism.

For children and young people, their experiences of belonging and inclusion are vital to their development. It is therefore essential that we do all we can to ensure children and young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds feel safe and included at school, in sports clubs and in the community.
