Brotherhood Talks:
Disability Rights seminar is postponed

We regret to announce that due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation we have had to postpone our Brotherhood Talks seminar, titled Disability Rights: how is Australia faring? The event was scheduled for Wednesday 25 March.

We are also postponing forthcoming Brotherhood Talks seminars as face-to-face events, and are investigating alternative ways of presenting them.

In the meantime, please stay in touch with our policy and research work, subscribe to our Brotherhood Update newsletter and listen to our podcasts of previous Brotherhood Talks.
