The national consultation commenced in March this year with the launch of a discussion paper, African Australians: A report on human rights and social inclusion issues. The project aims to build a national picture of the experiences of African Australians in the areas of employment and training, education, health, housing and justice.
The project has been co-funded by project partners including: the Australian Human Rights Commission (through National Action Plan funding); Adult Multicultural Education Services (AMES) in Victoria; Australian Red Cross; Diversity Health Institute; and the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA).
