Since our inception, Liberty Victoria has worked collaboratively with many organisations, at local, state, federal and even international levels. We have worked collaboratively in our campaigns for civil liberties, human rights and democratic governance. We have co-ordinated and hosted events - seminars, discussions, formal dinners, awards nights and fundraisers - with other organisations. Liberty Victoria has also endorsed and contributed to numerous submissions to government with other organisations and issued joint press releases.
Free Speech Victoria
In 2008 Liberty Victoria amalgamated with Free Speech Victoria. As part of this merger Liberty Victoria has taken on responsibility for the Voltaire Award Dinner. The Voltaire Award is made each year to a person who, or organisation which, has made a significant contribution to free speech. The winner for 2009 is the online advocacy organisation GetUp! Past winners include Julian Burnside AO QC and Kate Durham, Margaret Pomeranz, Richard Ackland and Stephen Mayne.

Cinema Nova has enabled Liberty Victoria to host a number of film night fundraisers. In 2008 our film night fundraiser was Waltz with Bashir and so far in 2009 we have screed the Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. We hope to screen another two films in 2009.
