Twenty Years: Twenty Stories

celebrating 20 years of the Disability Discrimination Act

Twenty years ago, life for millions of Australians got easier. The then Deputy Prime Minister in the Keating government, Brian Howe, introduced an Act that would, for the first time at a national level, make it unlawful for people with disability to be discriminated against. The genesis of change was the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth), which commenced operation on 1 March 1993.

Twenty Years: Twenty Stories marks the Disability Discrimination Act's twentieth birthday with twenty inspiring stories on film.
