Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission reporting tool

This reporting tool may be a useful additional service that empowers more people to report to the Commission incidents of discrimination or racial or religious vilification. We recognise that the reporting tool will not in itself address the challenge of under-reporting of discrimination, but we hope that it might be one small part of the solution.
