The University of Western Sydney is researching Bystander Anti-Racism. For more on this important project please go here.
What is bystander anti-racism?
Bystander anti-racism can be defined as:
Action taken by a person or persons (not directly involved as a target or perpetrator) to speak out about or to seek to engage others in responding (either directly or indirectly, immediately or at a later time) against interpersonal or systemic racism.
Bystander anti-racism is not necessarily about directly confronting a perpetrator. A range of actions are considered bystander anti-racism (see ‘What types of action can be taken?’). For more go to the link above.
