Video Resilience and reconciliation

TLF ID M025691

This clip looks at casual racism in Australia, including some infamous incidents throughout Adam Goodes’s playing career that shook the nation. Adam showed a great deal of resilience and courage throughout this difficult time. Look at how many Australians stood with Adam, letting him know they valued his leadership and efforts to stop racism. The #IStandWithAdam campaign became a powerful vehicle to spread the word that racism would not be tolerated in Australia. Adam’s resilience was pushed to the limit. He knew he needed to take some time off from football to look after himself. He showed the AFL community and Australians that it's OK to take a break.
