The Australian Multicultural Foundation website lists its aims and objectives as:
Aims and Objectives
- To cultivate in all Australians a strong commitment to Australia as one people drawn from many cultures and by so doing to advance its social and economic well-being
- The promotion of an awareness among the people of Australia of the diversity of cultures within Australia
- The contribution of people from all cultures to the development of Australia
- The spread of respect and understanding between all cultural groups through any appropriate means.
These seem wholesome noble aims.
But yes, it seems a tad contrary that the website’s Alumni page shows mainly photos of muslim women with head scarves.
Areas of interest
This section states “The Foundation has adopted an active role to develop intercultural initiatives” including “Promotion of awareness of our diverse cultures”, “increasing foreign language skills”, “Making use of cultural links between overseas communities and institutions and Australian residents”.
So how is this ‘cultivating in all Australians a strong commitment to Australia as one people’?
AMF partners include:
Community Languages Australia
“(Australian Federation of Ethnic Schools Associations) is an umbrella body designed to unite the ethnic schools of Australia, and the state-based bodies which serve as their administrators, consolidating them beneath a single, organizational banner, and in the process carrying out a number of crucial roles in the creation, maintenance, and profile of Australia’s over 1,000 community language schools, who provides language maintenance in 69 languages to in excess of 100,000 school age children.”
The Scanlon Foundation’s mission is: “to support the creation of a larger cohesive Australian society”. Cultural Diversity and Social Cohesion has been the primary focus of its grant giving since its establishment in 2001.

Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia
“FECCA is the peak, national body representing Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. FECCA’s role is to advocate, lobby and promote issues on behalf of its constituency to government, business and the broader community.
Aims of these Partners incongruent with stated core aim of AMF
Singling out these specific partners from others listed on the AMF website, it would appear that the aims of these organisations are inconsistent with AMF’s prime aim “to cultivate in all Australians a strong commitment to Australia as one people.”
Rather the aims read more like fostering the reinforcement of foreign cultures and languages, building a larger Australian society from increased immigration, developing multi-cultural opportunities, political advocacy and lobbying of foreign cultures in Australia. AMF is building lots of little countries in Australia.
Where does AMF foster Australian values, such as gender equity?
Where does AMF reject sharia law in favour of Australia’s secular laws?
Sharia Law Risk
Britain has been allowed to have mass immigration change its local culture to the extent Britain now recognises Sharia Law.
Is it only a matter of time before the cultural diversity in Australia pushes Sharia Law here?
