Every year the Commission holds the Human Rights Awards to celebrate human rights achievements. It is a chance to acknowledge, congratulate and share the important work of organisations, businesses, and individuals across the nation.
However, given the extraordinary circumstances of 2020 we believe a different approach is needed this year to celebrate the many human rights champions who have emerged. So we’ll be showcasing the human rights heroes of 2020 in a new online campaign – and we invite you all to join us.
If you know a person, group, organisation or community that has contributed to human rights in Australia in 2020, we want to hear from you! Fill out our quick submission form here and let us know who they are and what makes them a human rights hero. Submissions close Saturday 31st October.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
