On-demand: Professor Sue Harris Rimmer on the Queensland Human Rights Act review

This session, available for playback now on-demand, is a great opportunity learn how you can engage in the review going forward. Reflect on how our Human Rights Act is serving the community, and to explore areas where it can be strengthened.
