Georges River Council will explore the feasibility of supporting the #RacismNotWelcome campaign.
The council is already investigating the feasibility of partnering with the Australian Human Rights Commission to join the 'Racism. It Stops With Me' campaign.
Councillor Nick Katris asked that the report be expanded to include the Inner West Multicultural Network's #RacismNotWelcome campaign at the last council meeting.
He said the campaign would include "installing anti-racism street signage and/or banners to raise community awareness and demonstrate Georges River Council's commitment to being a racism-free local government area".
"Basically this is a symbolic gesture that I am hoping we will take on board," Cr Katris said at the meeting.
"It was spearheaded by a former Socceroo captain, Craig Foster, who is also an SBS commentator and human rights campaigner.
"Obviously he must have felt the pressure of racism when he was playing and I can understand that."
Cr Katris said the message that racism was not acceptable should resonate across the wider community.
"Racism has not been obliterated - it does exist," he said.
"I do want to make it quite clear...we often think of racism and racist slander as something which is common practice among...the bigoted ones...but I think this is a message we need to send to the whole community."
Sydney, Waverly and Newcastle councils are already supporting the campaign.
Cr Colleen Symington spoke in favour of the notice of motion.
"The street sign campaign has been devised to get into the heart of the community because racism is a part of our every day lives," she said.
"Craig Foster who is leading this campaign said, and I quote, 'The path ahead for every Australian council and for us as a country is to proclaim loudly, publicly and visibly that we're united together as people against division, against discrimination on all grounds and, in this context, race'.
"Racism is alive in our communities and we need to stand united and say no, it's not welcome."
The locations of the proposed #RacismNotWelcome signs will be included in the report to be presented at a future council meeting.
