The Autonomous Collective Against Racism (ACAR) is an SRC collective that provides an inclusive safe space with an activist dynamic and support system for those who identify as a ‘person of colour,’ Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, and/or feel marked or marginalised by white supremacy. We aim to foster a warm, supportive and proactive group to address issues of racism, both within the University and beyond, in our greater communities. Through weekly meetings and the creation of events and projects for both collective members and the wider university community, we hope to open and further discussion and awareness about experiences and issues surrounding racism and white supremacy. ACAR continues to promote and ensure the representation of people of colour and our multitude of experiences through a variety of initiatives over the year. There is also an autonomous Ethnocultural Space in Manning House.
