CALLS FOR COMMUNITY TO GET INVOLVED IN MULTICULTURALISM

Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka has encouraged locals to get involved and become a champion of multiculturalism by joining a Multicultural NSW Regional Advisory Council (RAC).




 As part of the NSW Government’s Community Engagement Strategy, 12 RACs will be established in regional and metropolitan areas to facilitate consultation between local communities and Government.

 Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka said the RACs play a vital role in ensuring all communities across NSW have their voices heard.

 “This is your chance to not only have your say about issues affecting your community, but more importantly to do something about it,” Mr Ajaka said.

 Each RAC is chaired by a Multicultural NSW Board member, and comprises of up to 8 community members and 7government members.

 The RACs identify issues that affect our community, and work closely with government and non-government agencies to help resolve them.

 There are 12 RACs in NSW including Northern NSW, New England-North West, Western NSW, Murray-Lower Darling, Riverina, Illawarra-South East, Hunter and Central Coast, North Sydney, East Sydney, South Sydney, West Sydney and South West Sydney.

 Applications to join a RAC close on 12 February 2016.
