This video tells the inspirational story of Localities Embracing and Accepting Diversity (LEAD), a program that addresses race-based discrimination and promotes cultural diversity.

It was implemented through local government settings; City of Whittlesea and Greater Shepparton City Council. Programs such as LEAD are important because they help create healthier, happier individuals, businesses and communities, as you’ll see from the stories from program participants in this video.
