PEACEapp winner: Everyday Racism (by Nova Longhurst)

All Together Now is the only national not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to ending racism in Australia. All Together Now focuses on creating projects that are designed to educate the individual and wider society on what racism is, how to speak up when witnessing it and encouraging social discussion on racism. The Everyday Racism mobile phone app is one of the projects designed to start this national review on racism in Australia.

Everyday Racism is a mobile phone app offering the User the ability to walk in someone else’s shoes for an entire week. The challenge is set at the beginning of the App to live in the life of an Aboriginal man, a Muslim woman, an Indian student or as yourself for that week. It’s an immersive experience where you’ll receive texts, tweets, images and videos that will challenge you and your assumptions. It will help you understand the importance of speaking up when you witness racism.
