About the Justice and Equity Centre

The Justice and Equity Centre (formerly known as the Public Interest Advocacy Centre) is a leading independent law and policy centre. We help build a fairer, stronger society by tackling injustice and inequality.

We work with people experiencing disadvantage to expose discrimination and unfairness. We use test cases and policy advocacy to drive law reform and systems change. Our work protects and promotes human rights by challenging government and corporations. We collaborate and partner to develop solutions and achieve social justice.



Towards Truth is a partnership between PIAC and UNSW Indigenous Law Centre.
Former disability discrimination commissioner Graeme Innes settled a dispute over a 'humiliating and distressing' experience.
We secured a settlement for our client Yasir* who alleges he was forced to wear handcuffs to access healthcare.

Every donation helps build a fairer, stronger society.
