“Australia has been profoundly shaped by the contributions of immigrants. We are rightly proud of our success as a multicultural nation. Yet we can also do better in living up to our credo of a fair go. We can do better to show a generosity of spirit to those who arrive on our shores. Let’s not forget that those who settle here are not strangers in our midst, but our future fellow Australians.” – Dr. Tim Soutphommasane, Race Discrimination Commissioner
