PIAC rebrand: A new name for a fairer, stronger society

An excerpt from the Law Society Journal:

On 1 July, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), a renowned legal and policy centre that has advocated for social justice for more than 40 years, will become the Justice and Equity Centre.

Sera Mirzabegian SC, PIAC Chair, says the new name reflects the organisation’s mission to build a fairer, stronger society by challenging laws and practices that cause disadvantage and inequality.

“We are building on more than 40 years of history. PIAC is renowned and respected for its expertise, tenacity and heart. We are proud to be continuing that legacy with a new name and a renewed commitment to our purpose,” Mirzabegian says.
