Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Information

The Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland's functions involve taking a leadership role in human rights in Queensland including upholding, promoting, and protecting the rights of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Commission acknowledges the structural barriers that Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples are confronted with in daily life, and recognises the distinction that Indigenous Australians hold as the original peoples of this land.

The Anti-Discrimination Act protects all people from discrimination, sexual harassment, racial and other vilification, as well as other objectionable conduct.
