Some of Australia’s largest companies have joined over 150 of Australia’s corporate, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and community organisations to issue a joint statement to call for renewed efforts to stamp out racism in sport and in everyday life. You can read more about this campaign and the organisations joining to show their support by reading the full statement of support, found here.
