The DoMore campaign aims to be “a call to action for all Australians to be allies,” with their Australian launch video featuring personal messages from other ambassadors, including NBA star Ben Simmons, actors Miranda Tapsell and Samara Weaving, tennis player Nick Kyrgios and more.
“We can all make changes in our everyday lives – it’s about listening, understanding, doing your research and learning about others’ experiences,” Simmons said in the clip. “Putting that into action and doing more to stop racism is something all Australians can play a part in.”
According to the website, “#DoMore is a call to action for Australians wanting to be more informed, more educated, and more engaged in challenging racism.”
“The #DoMore Project will use the stories of Australians of all backgrounds to challenge existing beliefs and raise awareness of the impact of racism. By understanding how we can all do more, we’ll help create an equal future for all Australians.”
New videos are set to be uploaded weekly to the DoMore site while featuring interviews that document real-life experiences from Australians from various backgrounds. These stories are made to “encourage active participation in the name of anti-racism”.
