SHOWING UP: BYSTANDER INTERVENTION PROGRAM
Islamophobia and Antisemitism are prominent and serious issues for many community members across Victoria.
As part of the Anti-Racism and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan, the Victorian Government is supporting key organisations to deliver community-led responses to Islamophobia and Antisemitism. This project is a collaborative initiative by the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV), Australian Intercultural Society (AIS), Australasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) and Benevolence Australia who have formed a united body aimed at addressing these issues.The project aims at empowering people to be active bystanders when confronted with Islamophobia or Antisemitism; trained to be confident and tooled-up to take a safe active stance when observing Antisemitism and Islamophobia.
Delivered across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, our half day programs will:
- Provide community-led responses to Islamophobia and Antisemitism
- Support people who have been subjected to Islamophobia and Antisemitism
- Support bystanders to respond to situations
- Raise awareness of issues and promote respectful behaviour and interfaith understanding
