Human Rights Committee
The Human Rights Committee:
- Provides advice and leadership on the human rights initiatives undertaken by CCD
- Identifies human rights issues of concern to persons with disabilities that could be addressed through law reform initiatives
- Selects human rights/equality rights test cases that will advance the rights of persons with disabilities
CCD shares its views on policy reform with Federal Ministers. For example, in January 2011, CCD, along with others in the disability community met with Minister Diane Finley and Minister Steven Fletcher.
