Unity In Diversity
Nelson Multicultural Council is a non-government organisation which supports migrants, former refugees and people from minority ethnicities in the Nelson Tasman region with their settlement process. It promotes positive race relations through community education, ensuring people of all ethnicities feel empowered so that they can actively contribute to our community. Cultural Diversity enriches our society and provides opportunities for economic growth, community development and international relationships.
