Human Rights education opportunities


The Human Rights Act for Australia campaign will hold a series of meeting in schools in April. The campaign would like to hold more such events.

If you are a teacher or involved with a school, we would be happy to provide you with a speaker to discuss the importance of human rights and the need for Australia to catch with other Western countries like the United Kingdom and New Zealand by introducing a Human Rights Act. We would also discuss basic civics such as how a law is made and the structure of our democracy.
