Partners

FECCA develops partnerships with other organisations that have a mutual interest in its values, including the promotion of multiculturalism, the protection of community harmony, the advocacy of social justice, and the rejection of racism and discrimination.

Partnerships are formalised by memoranda of understanding or other forms of agreement. These partnerships support the joint promotion or advocacy on issues of shared concern, project collaboration and policy development. Wherever possible, partnerships assist to extend the scope of each organisation’s client base, its strategic influence and special interests.

Recognise

RECOGNISE is the people’s movement to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian Constitution and ensure there’s no place in it for racial discrimination.

In December 2015 nine CALD organisations, including FECCA, joined forces to declare their support for the recognition of Australia's first peoples in the Constitution, by signing the RECOGNISE CALD Accord.

Racism. It Stops With Me

Racism. It Stops With Me is the primary awareness raising and engagement activity within the National Anti-Racism Strategy led by the Australian Human Rights Commission. FECCA is proud to be a member of the partnership, comprising both government and community bodies that supports the development and implementation of the strategy and the campaign.

The Campaign's three objectives are to ensure more Australians recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community; create tools and resources to take practical action against racism; and empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism

National Congress of Australia's First Peoples

In 2012, FECCA was proud to be the first organisation in Australia to sign an Accord with the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples, recognising and supporting Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as First Peoples of Australia. FECCA believes multiculturalism begins with recognising the rights and place in society held by Australia's First Peoples and the rich cultural heritage that their communities have long nurtured. FECCA is proud to work alongside the Congress and is committed to anti-discrimination, the eradication of racism, and promoting the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
