OUR AREAS OF IMPACT
We advocate for the development of law and a justice system which is fair, just and equitable, taking on the most challenging cases that will advance human rights.
Far too often in Australia, people are denied access to quality healthcare due to racial discrimination, their country of origin and visa status, or due to of a physical or intellectual disability.
The right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, and the responsibility of governments to ensure access to medical care for their people, is enshrined in international law.
The National Justice Project’s Health Justice Program challenges systemic discrimination in the healthcare system by securing legal and policy reforms to ensure equitable access to quality, dignified and culturally-safe healthcare. The National Justice Project works to achieve health justice through strategic legal action, education programs, advocacy, projects and partnerships.
Our Racial Justice Program works to defend and extend the rights of First Nations people and culturally and linguistically diverse communities who have experienced racial discrimination. Our work combats racial discrimination in healthcare systems, immigration detention, prisons and juvenile detention, and policing.
Institutions and systems in Australia oppress and marginalise minority people and communities. The National Justice Project aims to uphold and extend the right to safe and equitable access to justice by stimulating legal and policy reforms to ensure people can engage with systems such as the criminal justice and child protection systems, free from discrimination.
