ENDORSING | Equity for All: a fairer go for Australian Originals, 1st Boat People and Subsequent Migrants

In 2017, the Uluru Statement from the Heart, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people told Australia what they want from constitutional reform.
At the Uluru First Nations Constitutional Convention, the Uluru Position Working Group was elected to move forward the reforms called for in the Uluru Statement. The Working Group calls on all Australians to take the time to read the Statement, to understand its history, and then walk with them in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.

Since Uluru, the Statement has been on a journey, travelling around Australia being endorsed by communities and organisations across Australia.

All Australians are entitled to live their lives free from fear, exclusion, discrimination, and violence. We call for all Australia’s communities, including faith communities, to take a strong stand against discrimination in all its forms. Equity of Acceptance for all Australian Citizens is a logical, evidence-based expression for the every day.

SUPPORTING | Equality for All: a fair go of gender-neutral marriage between equals

ON 17 AUGUST 2017, over 100 faith and community leaders came together in Victoria to better support the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and gender diverse (LGBTIQA+) in our communities.

Celebrating Victoria’s diverse faith and multicultural communities, Glen Eira Interfaith Network would like to say the following: 
  • Faith has been and continues to be a source of both solace and suffering for many LGBTIQA+ around the world; many continue to cherish their faith community but too many have been forced to leave communities behind due to condemnation of LGBTIQA+ people.
  • LGBTIQA+ from faith and culturally diverse backgrounds continue to face exclusion and rejection from families, communities and places of worship, and also from broader LGBTIQA+ community. 
  • Discrimination and conversion therapy has a devastating impact upon mental health and well-being of LGBTIQA+ people. And we know LGBTIQA+ people from all backgrounds experience significantly higher levels of mental distress, self-harm and suicide than heterosexuals. This will only be exacerbated by divisive debates if the postal survey on marriage equality goes ahead. 
  • Faith and community leaders are invited to recognise how supportive communities help to protect and nourish self-esteem of all its members, while providing a sense of belonging and worth for LGBTIQA+. Let us work together to grow respectful and compassionate relationships with LGBTIQA+ Victorians, continuing development of inclusive faith-based resources, and creating safe and affirmative spaces in our communities for LGBTIQA+ people and their families. 
All Victorians are entitled to live their lives free from fear, exclusion, discrimination, and violence. We call for all Victoria’s communities, including faith communities, to take a strong stand against discrimination in all its forms. Equality in Marriage for all Australian Citizens is a logical, evidence-based expression for the every day.
