    Human rights laws are made by the United Nations.

    The United Nations is made up of governments from 193 countries.

  • The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is a law that protects and promotes our rights.

    It is called the CRPD for short.

    Australia has signed the CRPD.

    The government must protect and promote the rights of people with disability.

  • The government has to report to the United Nations on how Australia is doing at protecting our rights.

    People with disability and disability organisations also write a report.
