Strategic litigation is increasingly becoming a powerful tool for social change in Australia, and with your help we’ve been able to grow our capacity to fund cases that are already having an impact.
In a time when our democratic freedoms, human rights, and the environment are under threat from those who are meant to protect them, it’s critical Australians can access the courts and collectively hold governments and corporate leaders accountable for their actions.
This year, we've got big plans to re-open our courts and our democracy and protect our community's rights and freedoms. Please make a tax deductible donation today to ensure we can achieve this ambitious vision together.
Your support this year has supported the remote community of Santa Teresa to tackle racist housing policies in the NT, has helped disability advocate take CBA on over discriminatory tech and helped historian Prof Jenny Hocking challenge the National Archives' decision to deny the public access to the letters between Sir John Kerr and the Queen -- in the context of a broader pattern of governments shutting down the public's access to information about what they are doing in our names.
With a Federal Election looming, we know 2019 will bring fresh challenges to fairness, equality, democracy and the environment in Australia. But you can be certain that with people like you by our side — we’ll be ready to take them on.
We'll establish a Freedom Clinic to reopen our freedom of information system for all Australians, create an Indigenous Justice project to ensure Indigenous Australians are empowered to tackle police brutality and prison inequity in court, and catalyse High Court challenges to draconian anti-dissent laws.
Please help put this massive plan into action by making a tax deductible gift today. We can't do it without you.
