The Grata Community does this by chipping in to remove the enormous financial barriers to court and by supporting people to integrate litigation with strategic movement-driven campaigns.
By holding decision-makers accountable in court and pushing back against unfairness, our movement can relieve hardship for millions of Australians.
We’re inspired by game-changing court cases that have disrupted unjust laws around the world. We believe the time has come for Australians to get their day in court too.
