Multicultural Whangārei

Race Relations Day

Race Relations Day is celebrated on 21st March each year – it is the day the United Nations mark as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The New Zealand Human Rights Commission also recognise Race Relations Day. Multicultural Whangārei is committed to continuing to raise the profile of the day in Whangārei, which aligns with our values in that it celebrates and acknowledges racial harmony.

Each year we join forces with WINGS, Citizens Advice Bureau and English Language Partners to provide an event that is open to all and acknowledges the importance of the day.
