Anglicare Australia supports simplification of anti-discrimination law

The Anglicare Australia network seeks to engage with ALL Australians to build communities of resilience, hope and justice.  Our members provide services right across Australia, and do not discriminate on the basis of culture, religion, sexuality or gender.

That’s why we support the principle of simplifying Australia’s anti-discrimination laws.  Recognizing that simplification is in itself a complex task, however, we welcome the draft legislation process which allows any concerns regarding the Australian Government’s current proposal to be addressed.

Anglicare Australia is committed to putting the most marginalised and vulnerable members of our community at the heart of social policy decisions, and it is in their interest that we hope the resulting human rights and anti-discrimination legislation is both workable and easy to understand.
