Location: online
Intended Audience: Young people aged 14-17

What You Say Matters is a new resource to educate and engage young people about racism and to empower them to respond safely when they experience or witness it.

The resource includes a music video clip and online educational content. The clip features Indigenous hip-hop artist Brothablack and was created with the participation of students from James Meehan High School in south western Sydney.

You can find the resource on the "Racism. It Stops with Me" campaign website

What you say matters has been funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) under the National Anti-Racism Strategy.
