UnitingCare network recommits to eliminating discrimination
UnitingCare Australia and the UnitingCare National Network on Ageing support action to further protect people in the Australian community from discrimination.
National Director, Lin Hatfield Dodds said the Australian Government’s Draft Exposure Bill on Human Rights will should simplify and strengthen existing legislation to further protect, among others, people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex.
“The draft Bill consolidates Commonwealth laws covering discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability and age. It adds new protections from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
“It also strengthens protections against workplace discrimination on the basis of other attributes, including religion and political opinion.
“These are very welcome developments. We deliver aged care services to people regardless of their age, gender, sexuality, ability, class, race, creed or cultural origin.
“Our position is informed by the Uniting Church’s belief that every person is entitled to live with dignity, and we support efforts that further protect these rights.”
