Twenty Years: Twenty Stories

One in five Australians has a disability. That’s about 4 million people. Chances are you, or someone you know, has a disability.

Being discriminated against because of disability is unlawful. But until 1993, it was not against the law to deny someone with a disability, equality. On March 1, the Human Rights Commission celebrated not just the 20th birthday of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, but a collection of triumphs, that have made Australia a better place.

Twenty Years: Twenty Stories is a collection of stories, told on film, demonstrating how the lives of those with disability have changed under the Act and in some cases, change hasn’t eventuated. Watch, enjoy and reflect here.
