EQUALITY

The pandemic has seen worsening inequality in our workplaces and households, as well as increased reports of violence against women on the Peninsula. The Jenkins Report reaffirms the urgent need to radically invest in system change to ensure our residents are free and supported to be their best version.

 

I WILL ADVOCATE FOR:

  • Full implementation of the Respect@Work report into sexual harrassment and gender safety in the workplace
  • Funding for evidence based programs into the prevention of gender based violence
  • Full implementation of the recommendations of the Aged Care Royal Commission
  • Our First Nations people, and commit to the principles of the Uluru Statement of the Heart – a constitutionally enshrined voice to the parliament, the establishment of the Makarrata Commission that will oversee agreement and treaty-making, and commit to a national process of truth-telling.
  • Our LBGTQIA+ community to ensure they can live their best lives, free from harm. 
  • A more humane policy in regards to our refugees and asylum seekers languishing in immigration detention. 
  • An increase to the Jobseeker payment to ensure all Australians can live with dignity. 
  • Valuing our Care Economy.
