NSW Election: A Human Rights Agenda

Amnesty International Australia has written to the leaders of the major parties ahead of the NSW election, calling on whoever forms government to implement a human rights agenda for the state.

The 2023 March election takes place at a critical time for human rights in NSW. While many governments across Australia have taken action to progress human rights, NSW has lagged. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

By implementing Amnesty’s human rights agenda, the next NSW Government can help ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children go to school and not to prisons; they can ensure that members of the LGBTQIA+ community are treated equally; and they can protect the fundamental freedoms and protections that belong to all people in NSW.
