CAF Forum: Reporting Racism - Know Your Rights (Full Video)
On 22 July, CAF held an online forum to educate the public on what to do when they experience racism. Most racist attacks go unreported, many people don’t know what they can do after they’ve been attacked. That means racist incidents are not acknowledged or addressed in our society and those subjected to the abuse do not know who they can turn to for help. We brought together a panel of key speakers to discuss how to report racism, why you need to report it and which organisations can provide support.
The full recording from the event can be viewed above or on youtube.
