Social activists these days are using technology to help fight racism. All Together Now, group of few enthusiasts from Australia have created an app for challenging the understanding of people on racism.
Dubbed everyday racism, this game-like application would enable its users to ape an Aboriginal man, an Indian student or a Muslim woman. It is an never to forget experience where over a course of one week, you will start receiving texts, images,, videos and tweets that will challenge you and your hypothesis. It would aide you in understanding the significance of speaking u when you witness racism. Capture this situation to experience what life could be like for cultural minorities of Australia.
All Together Now was the outcome of a research by the group in the field of racism and anti-racism in collaboration with University of Western Sydney, Deakin University and Melbourne University.
In order to create the app, the universities relied on a board of 10 people from diverse ethnicities, who narrated their own real-life everyday racism experiences.
The game can be downloaded for free via the App Store or Google Play.
