Thank you to everyone who supported PIAC at the 2018 Social Justice Dinner on Thursday. It was a wonderful event that highlighted the work that PIAC does with its partners and supporters to promote social justice.
We are especially grateful to our special guest speaker, Professor Megan Davis, and MC extraordinaire Julian Morrow.
Professor Davis received a standing ovation for her speech about constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
We were honoured to have the Uluru Statement in the room, held on stage by Teela Reid, Gemma McKinnon and Sean Brennan, all of whom played important roles in the Indigenous Constitutional dialogues.
‘We leave base camp and start our trek across this vast country. We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future,’ said Professor Davis, reading from the Uluru Statement.
‘It was a privilege to have Megan Davis speak about voice, treaty and truth,’ said PIAC CEO, Jonathon Hunyor.
‘We are proud to walk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People on the path towards justice.’
‘We warmly thank our sponsors – The Law Society of NSW, Allen & Overy, Lawcover, Macquarie and Minter Ellison – as well as the many people who gave generously on the night,’ said Jonathon Hunyor. ‘The level of support that PIAC receives from across the legal community, civil society, government and business sectors underpins our success. We are very grateful to everyone who works with us to lead change.’
