Engaged ANUEnding Racism

Research from the Mayi Kuwayu Study shows that everyday discrimination causes a significant share of psychological distress for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The health and social inequities we see today between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous people are not due to biology or race – these are clear, direct consequences of Australia’s settler-colonial history and ongoing racism
