New online tool for reporting racist abuse or discrimination

New online tool for reporting racist abuse or discrimination

18 Jun, 2020

An online racism reporting tool has been developed by the Queensland Human Rights Commission (QHRC) in response to an increased demand for race-related complaints data.

The tool allows people to let the QHRC know about their experiences and have those experiences recorded, even if they don’t want to make a formal complaint.

It will also mean people who don’t know the name of the person responsible for the act – particularly common for acts of racial abuse which happen in public places, for example – are able to lodge a report.

If you've been targeted by racial abuse or vilification, formal complaints can be lodged at the Commission, or with the police in the case of threats of physical harm. If you don't want to make a formal complaint, the Commission urges you to report it using the new online tool.
