Welcome to the First Nations Racism Register! A register to report racism and discrimination experienced by First Nations Peoples.


The Call It Out First Nations Racism Register was officially launched on 21 March 2022 to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and is led by the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research (Jumbunna Research), in partnership with the National Justice Project (NJP). Together, we are exposing and resisting racism in Australia.

The Call It Out register provides a simple and secure way for people to report or ‘call out’ incidents of racism and discrimination toward First Nations Peoples. These reports are collected, held securely and analysed by Jumbunna Research to inform annual reports to help raise awareness and drive systematic change.

Call It Out was created to build an evidence base to combat the ongoing denial of the existence and negative impacts of racism on all aspects of people’s lives, including social and emotional wellbeing.

Our purpose is to collect information on racism, including how it is experienced, how often it is occurring and the impact it is having on individuals and communities. This information will inform evidence-based research that enables us to report on racism and its impacts, inform anti-racism action, support the response of First Nations organisations and leaders and educate the wider community.

Our aim is to prepare an annual public report outlining the frequency and nature of reported incidents of racism. We see Call It Out as a long term project that can progressively impact public policy into the future.

The register follows in the footsteps of Jewish and Muslim groups who collect and report on anti-Semitic and Islamophobic incidents. We thank those communities for their support in developing this register.

For more information about how we use the reports made on this register and how we protect your personal information, please see our Privacy Policy.

“This piece is called ‘Guurramali’ which means to resist or stand strong in the Yuwaalaraay language. Our people stand strong in culture, and strong in their resistance to injustice, whether in their dealings with prisons and police, child welfare or land and climate justice – this is what this piece is about. This is a journey we have been on since colonisation and that we will continue on for many years yet. It is a journey where we also need non-Indigenous people to walk with us to achieve good outcomes for our people.”


Call It Out is led by the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research (Jumbunna Research), with support from the National Justice Project (NJP).
