Parliamentary monitoring

Triangle Project regularly attends and monitors specific parliamentary portfolio committees (including but not limited to the Police Portfolio Committee and the Justice and Correctional Services Portfolio Committee) relevant to furthering the agenda of LGBTIQ rights and deepening LGBTIQ civic participation.  Monitoring parliamentary portfolio committees not only assists us to better advocacy for LGBTIQ rights in policy debates, but helps build relationships with allied politicians.  For example, Triangle Project worked closely with Congress of the People MP Diedre Carter to mobilise the community in support of the Civil Union Amendment Bill, which makes it impermissible for marriage officers working for the State to refuse to marry same-sex couples.
