The Right Way - A dialogue about a Human Rights Act for Queensland

It is time for the introduction of a Human Rights Act in Queensland. 

Queensland’s unique single house parliamentary system leaves us exposed to the misuse of government power. A Human Rights Act would protect Queenslanders and improve Queensland’s system of government. Victorians and residents of the ACT have enjoyed the protection of human rights laws for years. Their experience is one of improved government accountability, improved service delivery and more transparent decision-making. 

Join us at Queensland’s Parliament House for a conversation about the role of a Human Rights Act in a free and democratic society.
