Building a case to Act


The Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 was one of Queensland’s most important laws to be passed as part of major legal reform undertaken by the Goss Labour Government in the early 1990s. The Act was a game-changer that would influence the way Queenslanders lived, worked, and interacted. 25 years later, what was the impact of the Act and is anti-discrimination legislation enough to protect human rights in Queensland? Dean Wells, Barrister and former Queensland Attorney-General (1989-1995), The Honourable Yvette D’Ath, Queensland Attorney-General (2015-current), and Aimee McVeigh, Campaign Coordinator for A Human Rights Act in Queensland, reflect on 25 years of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 and its relevance to all Queenslanders.
