The Morrison government allows religious schools to fire LGBT+ teachers and staff.
The fate of LGBT+ teachers and staff working in religious schools could be decided this week.
We need to keep the pressure up on Scott Morrison and the Liberals to end legalised discrimination in schools, not just for students, but for teachers too.
The Greens support the right of people to practice religion, but that should not come at the expense of the human rights of LGBT+ people.
Our laws should protect LGBT+ people from discrimination, not enshrine the right to discriminate against them.
That’s why the Greens will introduce a bill to amend the Sex Discrimination Act to bar religious schools from discriminating against students and teachers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identification.
We can build a future where everyone is treated with compassion and respect, but only if we fight against every attempt to divide us. Will you help us defeat this latest attack on the LGBT+ community?
