Here’s where you come in

Tauiwi Tautoko is an 10 week program that weaves together online training and in-person hui (gatherings) to provide you with the tools, community and courage to participate in online conversations about race with evidence-based listening and messaging techniques.

Specifically, you will be trained and supported to:

  • Facilitate more informed, and courageous conversations about race, refugees, NZ history and the Treaty;
  • Challenge racial stereotypes and racism;
  • Defend human rights.

“Tauiwi Tautoko has given me so much hope by seeing from real practical work that with small acts of compassion we can overcome the hate.”

— Amy (2018 participant)
