Happy Human Rights Day!
Today we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and acknowledge the importance of upholding equality and combatting discrimination in our communities.
At the African Australian Advocacy Centre, we remain determined to create a society where everyone is treated with respect and dignity regardless of their background or ethnicity. Through ongoing collaborations with organisations such as the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, we will continue to advocate for the protection of human rights.
In light of this commemoration, the African Australian Advocacy Centre is delighted to announce the submission of its comprehensive document to the Australian Government: “RESPONSE TO THE UN WORKING GROUP OF EXPERTS OF PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT RECOMMENDATIONS.”
This submission is a testament to our unwavering commitment to the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
