Advocating for the right for all people with disability to live a life free from violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination is core to QAI’s work.
QAI welcomed the opportunity to provide a submission to the Queensland Human Rights Commission (QHRC) as part of the review of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld). The issues raised in the submission are based on, and extend from the Ten-Point Plan for a Fairer Queensland. The Ten-Point Plan for a Fairer Queensland was prepared by an alliance of Queensland lawyers and advocates and QAI lawyers actively participated in the preparation of the Ten-Point Plan.
QAI’s submission supports the Ten-Point Plan and offers further discussion and recommendations specifically in relation to disability protections. We bring a human rights approach to examining the relevant legislation, informed by the lived experience of people with disabilities.
