Stand-up for Human Rights this Financial Year
There’s never been a more important time to stand-up for human rights
We are currently seeing an unprecedented assault on human rights and independent media in Australia.
As a human rights organisation, we stood in shock with the nation as we watched the raids carried out against journalists. We will not be silenced. As Australia’s largest human rights event, committed to truth-telling and spotlighting the issues that matter, our resolve has been strengthened.
After this year’s festival over 98% of attendees undertook an action to improve human rights. Even though we continue to endure funding cuts to arts and human rights organisations, we plan on coming back bigger and bolder in 2020.
It is clear that since the election, Independent human rights organisations like ours must now rely on support from our community. We want to continue telling diverse and trustworthy first-hand stories that change the way we think about human rights, but we cannot do it alone.
We cannot do it without you.
