Join us in Melbourne for an exciting public conversation about why and how we need to ensure everyone’s human rights are properly protected and that people have the power to hold governments to account.
Public event - All welcome
Our lives are better when we all treat each other with respect and compassion. Yet here in Australia the values we hold dear – like fairness and equality – are not properly protected in our laws. Ours is the only western democracy without a Charter of Rights. We want to change this – and we need your help!
This Human Rights Day join us for an exciting public conversation about the new campaign to create an Australian Charter of Human Rights.
Which rights will a Charter protect? How will it work? And how can we make it a reality? These are the topics our expert panel of human rights lawyers and campaigners – Shen Narayanasamy, Lee Carnie, and Julie Debeljak – will be dissecting and we’d love to hear your questions and ideas.
Guests are invited to stick around after the panel and Q and A session for some social drinks kindly provided by our friends at Maurice Blackburn Lawyers.
