Did you know that your basic human rights are not protected by law in Australia?

Australia needs a Human Rights Act to make sure every single one of us is treated with equality, justice, dignity and respect, no matter who you are or what you believe.

But right now, our government is making various laws which only protect some rights for some people. This is setting up a complicated web of legislation that pits different rights, and people, against each other. 

A single Human Rights Act that defends and protects all rights will make sure your right to religion, freedom, and speech, as well as your right not to be discriminated against, are protected equally.

When Israel Folau discriminates against the LGBTQI community, when Pauline Hanson discriminated against the Indigenous community, and when politicians talk about religious freedom - they breach our rights, and they fail to understand that rights come with responsibilities.

By protecting human rights in law, we can create better lives for ourselves and our fellow human beings. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has the power to protect and defend our human rights. Call on him to legislate a Human Rights Act now.
