Liberty Victoria is one of Australia’s leading civil liberties organisations - working to defend and extend human rights and freedoms in Victoria since 1936.
We do this on limited funds, with no support from Government. We rely on a small part time office team, volunteers who do the work and the financial support of our members, donors and people who come along to our events.
Liberty Victoria has a long and proud history of campaigning for civil liberties and human rights since 1936.
The objects of the Victorian Council for Civil Liberties Incorporated (the Council) are to advance measures and take those steps it deems necessary for the defence and extension of:
(a) Civil liberties in Victoria;
(b) The rights recognised by the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities; and
(c) The rights and freedoms recognised by national and international law.
In Feburary 2010 Liberty Victoria undertook a major strategy review of the work and focus of our organisation.
