In February 2019, the Queensland State Parliament passed the strongest and clearest human rights act in the country making Queensland a national human rights leader.
To prepare for the introduction of the Act and complaints mechanism, Disability Law Queensland Director and founder and coordinator of the Human Rights Act for Queensland campaign, Aimee McVeigh, is holding a three-hour workshop for disability organisation employees, people with disability, their families and supporters.
Attendees of the event will:
- Become aware of the 23 human rights protected by the legislation and learn about what the Act means for Queenslanders, especially people with disability.
- Learn what the Act means for your organisation, what your obligations are under it and how to make sure you are compliant.
- Learn how to be a human rights warrior – use the Act in your work and life to ensure that people have freedom and are treated with respect, equality and dignity.
