African Action Plan

Mr PEARSON — I was really pleased and delighted that in last Tuesday’s state budget we saw funding available to implement the African action plan. It is so important that we ensure the various African communities are not left behind. The plan has been carefully co-designed with the communities and will play a critical role in providing real opportunities for members of our African-Australian communities. We need to ensure that a child born today has the same opportunities regardless of the colour of their skin, the God they worship or the community they live in.
