World Day of Social Justice


Hi, I’m Kathryn Armfield [sign name]. I’m the first practising Deaf lawyer in Queensland, and I use Auslan! I have my own law firm, Armfield O’Brien Law, here in Brisbane. 

Today is the World Day of Social Justice. Social justice means what everyone should receive equal access to social, economic, and political opportunities. I hope for the Australian government to recognise that all Deaf Australians deserve to receive information in their own language, Auslan. Have a good day, bye!
