A benefit gig for Justice Connect
In Australia and around the world, there remain many laws worthy of ridicule – some because they’re outdated and no longer apply to contemporary life, others because they’re unfair and discriminatory.
So: what are the laws that we should be challenging … and just how hard is it to change them?
Join Julian Morrow, Dr Justine Rogers and Tom Ballard as they discuss the potential impacts of new laws that restrict the right to protest, dig into what happens to asylum seekers who arrived by boat before the introduction of offshore processing and reveal why victims of family violence can be liable for massive housing debts.
Special guest Professor Gillian Triggs, Human Rights Commission President and Justice Connect patron, will open the conversation with some insights from the front line.
Justice Connect helps people facing disadvantage – and the community groups who support them – to access free legal assistance. With our passion for pro bono legal work, we aim to create a fairer and more just world. Proceeds from this gig will help vulnerable people to get the legal help they need.
