EthicalJobs.com.au wants to match your donation to the Human Rights Law Centre

By Human Rights Law Centre

EthicalJobs.com.au will match your donations to the Human Rights Law Centre to help protect human rights in Australia.

EthicalJobs.com.au is proud to partner with the Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) to help protect human rights in Australia.

Until 31 May 2016, EthicalJobs.com.au will match, dollar for dollar, every donation to the HRLC made on this page, up to a total of $15,000.

So donate now and have your donation doubled!

Why donate?

Every person deserves basic human rights. Yet from the treatment of people seeking asylum to the disadvantage experienced by many Indigenous people, it’s clear that there’s so much more we can do to protect human rights in Australia.

You can help protect human rights.

The Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) does extraordinary work standing up for human rights in Australia. Its model of strategically mixing legal action, advocacy, research and capacity building is proven.

It’s also incredibly efficient – for every dollar donated, the HRLC leverages around five times that amount in pro bono work from leading law firms and barristers.

The HRLC has had many wins for human rights in Australia. They prompted and are helping to coordinate the #LetThemStay campaign that has prevented the removal of 267 vulnerable people back to Nauru and Manus Island and has seen over 90 children released from detention into the Australian community.

The HRLC also plays a leading role in tackling the crisis of Indigenous imprisonment; has successfully campaigned for laws to protect women accessing reproductive health services; and secured landmark schemes to erase unjust criminal records dating from when homosexuality was a crime.




Will you help the HRLC stand up for human rights?

The HRLC operates on a shoestring budget – 95 percent of which comes from donations from people like you who care about a fairer Australia.

They’ve got big plans for the next 12 months, but they need help to realise them.

Your support will mean HRLC can:

  • Help the #LetThemStay campaign to ensure 267 vulnerable people aren’t returned to harm on Nauru and Manus and push more broadly for humane refugee policies.
  • Support Indigenous organisations and leaders to promote solutions to cut the Indigenous imprisonment rate and stop deaths in custody.
  • Strengthen the legal protection of human rights including pushing for a national Human Rights Charter and resisting efforts to undermine protest rights and protections for whistleblowers.

And so much more!

Donate now and double your donation

With EthicalJobs.com.au‘s pledge to match dollar-for-dollar your support (up to $15,000), the impact of your donation will be doubled – that’s double the impact for human rights in Australia!

Just select an amount on the right of this page, and follow the steps from there.

You can find out more about the HRLC’s work at www.hrlc.org.au.
