We all have human rights. Protecting human rights is a way of ensuring everyone is treated fairly, equally, and with dignity and respect. In Western Australia, we don’t have formal protection for our human rights. Now is the time to come together to create a Human Rights Act for all of us.
A Human Rights Act aims for everyone to be treated fairly when they are dealing with the government and public authorities. A Human Rights Act would provide us with many protections, including ensuring that we can all access the health services we need regardless of our bank balance, and that every kid can get a good education, no matter their postcode. It will also provide us all with a powerful tool to challenge injustice and will mean that if someone has their rights violated by a public authority they can take action and seek justice.
Join the WA4HRA campaign now to help build a Human Rights Act for WA, for all of us.
