In the wake of the recent atrocities in our neighboring country New Zealand, MCCSA CEO Helena Kyriazopoulos says that now is the time for all people to come together and reflect on the strength of our diversity.
“I am delighted with all the achievements of our society and our set of core Australian values - defined by our inclusiveness, respect and sense of belonging bestowed to all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background” said Helena.
For this year’s Harmony Week celebrations ,MCCSA is proud to announce the launch of ‘We are All Humans’ a music video which was written, recorded and produced by a group of young people from diverse backgrounds in collaboration with the MCCSA Youth Development Team.
The message behind the song is that people come from different parts of the world to live in and contribute to Australia. Our difference is our biggest strength. We should celebrate our diversity and show our acceptance for one another.
MCCSA would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Harmony Week in 2019. We would really love to see this video and its message spread far and wide so are asking you to join us in sharing this video within all your networks. ... See MoreSee Less
