Mornington shire endorses human rights

Date: 28 Mar 2013

At the Council meeting on 25 March 2013, the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council endorsed a number of human rights initiatives:

  • Disability Action Plan 2013–2017
  • Australian Human Rights Commission "Racism - It stops with me" Campaign
  • Refugee Council of Australia's Refugee Welcome Zones initiatives to promote and enhance cultural diversity across the Peninsula.

The Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Group has been lobbying Council to continue its existing policies by supporting these initiatives. The council is to be congratulated on its very positive action and its continued support for human rights issues.
