The Andrews Labor Government has appointed three new commissioners to the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC).

Minister for Multicultural Affairs Robin Scott today announced Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa (Youth Commissioner), Walter Rapoport and Rosaria Zarro as VMC commissioners.

Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa is a performer and spoken word artist who works to shine a light on discrimination and create opportunities for other young people from culturally diverse backgrounds. She has been appointed to the VMC as Youth Commissioner.
VMC Chairperson Helen Kapalos said each Commissioner brings a wealth of experience and insight to their role.

Commissioners were selected to ensure representation from different cultures, genders, occupations and social backgrounds, as well as representation from various areas of Victoria.

They will join current commissioners Ross (Spiro) Alatsas (Deputy Chairperson), Sundram Sivamalai (Community Representative Commissioner) and Tina Hosseini, who have been re-appointed.

The VMC was established in 1983 and operates under the Multicultural Victoria Act 2011 as a conduit between culturally diverse communities and the Victorian Government.

It provides independent advice to inform the development of legislative and policy frameworks, as well as information and advice on the delivery of services to the state’s multicultural community.
