Harmony Week | 15th – 21st March 2022

#HarmonyWeek

Harmony Week is an opportunity for Australians to celebrate the rich cultural heritage and identity of our country. It is about inclusiveness, respect, and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background.

From the oldest continuous culture in the world of our First Nations people to the cultures of our newest arrivals from many countries around the world, Australia is a vibrant, multicultural land.  This week reminds us that we should celebrate this and work together to promote the message of harmony

Harmony Week includes 21 March, which is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This is traditionally called Harmony Day and the world observes this date as the day freedom from racial discrimination should be acknowledged and maintained as a human right.

At Illawarra Legal Centre, we are committed to fostering an environment where “everyone belongs”.  We strive to assist people to realise their legal rights, promoting social justice for all and providing a safe and inclusive environment.

We continue to actively protect the human rights of those who are vulnerable and seek to change the structures that systematically undermine those rights.

The designated colour for Harmony Week is orange.  Orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect.

So, this Harmony Week, 15th – 21st March, wear something orange to help promote the message of harmony.
