Victoria is built on more than 160 years of migration tradition. Together with the long traditions of our First Peoples, our history of multiculturalism has shaped our state. It has made us proud, diverse and accepting.

Victorian. And proud of it. shows the way forward to ensure we remain cohesive, and that every Victorian has the opportunity to be part of our state’s success.

The Victorian Values Statement is a vital step towards creating a shared sense of belonging, respect, acceptance and diversity essential for a safe, stable and sustainable Victoria where each of us contributes

Victorian. And proud of it. is also about sharing the stories, and celebrating the everyday examples of contribution and belonging that real Victorians from all walks of life make.

Wherever we were born, the language we first spoke or the faith we follow, we’re all Victorian, and it’s up to all of us to contribute and belong. To be Victorian. And proud of it.
