our record

Our record

We have been fighting injustice and inequality since 1982 when we were established as the Public Interest Advocacy Centre. Our work has achieved major advances for human rights and social justice. We have been determined, principled and tenacious in holding government and corporations to account for unjust, unfair and inhumane treatment.

How we make change

We tackle injustice and inequality by:
