Religious Discrimination 3.0

Religious Discrimination 3.0

The third version of federal Religious Discrimination bills gives unprecedented rights linked to religious “statements of belief”.

The bills would override federal, state and territory anti-discrimination laws, giving licence to discriminate against vulnerable groups like people with disability, sole parents, LGBTIQ+ people, women and unmarried couples.

Those who work for or rely on services provided by faith-based organisations would lose protections. Professional bodies may not be able to enforce inclusion and access standards.

Learn about the bill through one of the campaign groups working on this matter:

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
