OUR CASES ARE ONLY POSSIBLE WITH PEOPLE POWER

Our cases are only possible with people power

OUR COMMUNITY SUPPORTS PEOPLE TO ACCESS THE COURTS

Grata builds a fairer world by harnessing the power of high impact strategic litigation to create structural change. Democracy works when people can exercise their right to have a voice, including in court, where facts prevail over spin.

Australians are regularly blocked from exercising this basic democratic right because of insurmountable financial barriers to groundbreaking litigation, making it almost impossible to hold powerful governments and corporate leaders accountable.

Grata breaks down these barriers in three keys areas: climate justice, human rights, and democratic freedoms.

HOW WE MAKE IT HAPPEN

We do this using a movement lawyering approach: working with communities, legal experts and advocacy partners on integrated litigation and campaign strategies that tackle injustice while centering the voices and expertise of affected people. 
 
We prioritise cases that have the potential to break gridlocks and create significant sustainable impact for communities. We have a proven track record: nine in ten of our cases have been successful.

This is how we do it.
