Anti-racism project "Tauiwi Tautoko"
Keen to do something about racism in Nelson-Tasman and beyond?
Want to learn how to be a good ally?
Help us build a community without online hate and join “Tauiwi Tautoko”
Multicultural Nelson Tasman is seeking volunteers who wish to join the successful anti-racism project Tauiwi Tautoko, and to be trained and supported to challenge racialised online hate.
Being exposed to racism has serious negative effects on people’s health and wellbeing, and hateful and violent words can sometimes lead people to hateful and violent actions.
That is why it’s important for those not directly affected by racism to be part of the solution in promoting an inclusive multicultural society.
The programme will enable volunteers to:
- invite and facilitate more informed conversations about race, and refugees
- to challenge and reverse negative racial stereotypes by listening for understanding, finding common ground and offering an alternative narrative
Starting on Saturday, 2 April, the programme involves a full day in-person hui and a 10-week online training programme, where you will meet with facilitators and other volunteers for an hour each week.
