Equity is a key Australian value; the fair go. In order to ensure equity for all Australians, Australian Progressives will:

First Peoples of Australia

  1. Work with the First Peoples of Australia to write a treaty.
  2. Review frameworks to improve progress achieving Closing the Gap goals.
  3. Commit to long term funding initiatives to empower communities to solve their local issues.

Gender Equality

  1. Advocate for fairness for both women and men wherever there are systemic discriminatory practices; including equal pay, maternity leave, childcare and parental custody.

Domestic Violence

  1. Support all the recommendations to increase funding and services as outlined in the final report from the Victorian Royal Commission into Domestic Violence.

Protect Equality

  1. Defend Australia’s culture of egalitarianism by ensuring legal rights and opportunities are protected and applied equally to all Australians regardless of race, sex, gender, religious, political, or cultural affiliation.
