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 use a movement lawyering approach, an innovative model of collaborative justice which grew out of the US civil rights movement to build the power of the people, not the power of the law.     

We work alongside affected communities, taking direction from them and centring their voices to build integrated litigation and campaign strategies that tackle injustice.  

We collaborate with legal experts and advocacy partners on strategic public interest cases, remaining accountable to the people and communities we work with.

We have a proven track record of prioritising cases with the potential to break gridlocks and create systemic change with significant sustainable impact for communities.
