Human Rights

Campaign objective

To strengthen frameworks for the protection of human rights in Australia.

Focus areas

PILCH’s human rights framework campaign is focused on:   

  • improving the domestic protection of human rights, including through the application and strengthening of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (Vic) and the enactment of a national Human Rights Act;
  • strengthening federal and state equality laws, particularly in relation to discrimination on the grounds of homelessness, irrelevant criminal record, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity.
