In NSW, our families already can face discrimination in faith-based education and community settings.

The Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Religious Freedoms and Equality) Bill 2020 would expand these significantly.

  • Faith-based foster-care organisations could challenge NSW Government policies that require them not to discriminate against prospective LGBTQ foster carers;

  • it will be almost impossible for government and non-government employers, educators and professional and licencing bodies to foster inclusive cultures, or meet shareholder, customer or community expectations, when their employees or members use their religion privately to hurt others
