Anti-Discrimination Commission

What is the Anti-Discrimination Commission?

The Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission promotes equal opportunity for all Territorians. Established in 1993, we aim to eliminate discrimination from happening by raising awareness about individual’s rights and responsibilities under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act.

The Anti-Discrimination Commission has three main roles: Public education and training, handling complaints and community engagement.

More about the Anti-Discrimination Commission

If you have been unlawfully discriminated against, you can lodge a complaint under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act. But it’s important to know your rights and responsibilities before making a complaint.

Anti-Discrimination Commission Training 2018

Anti-Discrimination courses will be run in various venues throughout the Northern Territory in 2018, including Darwin, Alice Springs, and Katherine.

We’ll be in Alice Springs in the week of 30 April to 4 May 2018. For the first time in Alice Springs we will be offering Challenging Unconscious Bias as a public workshop!

Customised training courses can be arranged for businesses or organisations that would prefer to have in-house training for their staff. These courses can be tailored to focus on the particular needs of an organisation to heighten the relevance of the training.

12 April – Democracy Dash

On 12 April, the Anti-Discrimination Commission will once again be participating in the 2018 Democracy Dash.

Democracy Dash is a NT Youth Week event that is designed to teach students about democracy, the important work of democratic institutions and the responsibilities of citizens who live in a democracy. Students 'dash' around the CBD in an 'amazing race' style event, visiting several organisations and completing an activity at each location.

Students travel in teams of approximately 8 to 10 students with a teacher accompanying each group. The start and finish line is at Civic Park, which is located between Darwin City Council and Brown’s Mart on Smith Street.

It is organized by the NT Electoral Commission and is open to all students in
years 9-12.
