About the Event
Most of us are pretty lucky in South Australia - we have a warm bed to sleep in, jobs that are meaningful and pay the bills, and access to health care, education, clean water and safe roads. However, a growing number of us are struggling. Our older people are experiencing poor standards of care, some of our kids can't get the help at school they need, and our hospitals are overrun. There's no one list of values or rights we can point to as bringing us together - or holding government and decision makers to account - even though we all believe in a fair, strong, diverse and prosperous society.
Unlike other States and Territories - and almost all other democracies around the world - South Australia doesn't have a Human Rights Act or any other law that protects and promotes dignity and security, and the responsibilities that go with these ideas.
