The NSW Parliament is conducting an inquiry into the Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Religious Freedoms and Equality) Bill 2020, introduced by One Nation NSW Leader Mark Latham MLC.
While providing some discrimination protections, the One Nation Bill contains a number of provisions which could adversely affect, among others, LGBTQ+ people, women, divorced and unmarried people, and even people of faith.
Equality Australia is hosting an online briefing with Rainbodhi LGBTQIA+ Buddhist Community and the Buddhist Council of New South Wales to explain what the One Nation Bill means for the Buddhist community, including LGBTIQ+ people, women, people with disability and many others, and what you can do to ensure our laws protect all of us, equally.
Register here: The briefing will take place over Zoom. Zoom details will be emailed to you after registration and a reminder email will be sent prior to the event.
