Welcome to the STAR Project!
The STAR Project is about health students and staff Standing Together Against Racism in health care. The STAR Project supports Australia’s new Anti-Racism Strategy -
Racism: It Stops With Me, by taking on racism inside health.
Sporting bodies have signed up to support the anti-racism strategy and it’s time that health students and staff do the same with the a national campaign against racism in health care. It seems a little crazy that making racist comments on the sporting field is now more actively opposed than racism in health care, where it that targets our most vulnerable citizens.
The STAR Symbol
The 4 pointed STAR symbol stands for Stand Together Against Racism. The golden STAR represents hope. The stethoscope is a universal health tool used by many health professions. Most importantly, it is a meaningful symbol of anti-racism, that will become more potent the more health students and staff who wear it. It does not hurt the anti-racism cause that it is also an discrete and elegant little badge!
Be one of the 100 000 people in health care who STAR by June 2013!
