Safer Students Campaign

This campaign welcomes migrants and international students to Canterbury. It also works towards ensuring that migrants and international students know their rights in terms of racial safety and harassment, as well as to continue to support the Report-it website, an accessible reporting method for such incidents. The project is a collaboration between Lincoln University, University of Canterbury, CPIT, TRoNT, Christchurch City Council, NZ Police and the Human Rights Commission.
