About this project
PIAC is a strong advocate for justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
Our Indigenous Justice Program (IJP), which is supported by the law firm Allens, aims to work in partnership with organisations and communities to identify public interest issues which impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, and conduct advocacy, strategic litigation and policy work to address these wrongs.
The IJP has engaged with a wide range of issues including policing, the over-representation of young people in detention and discrimination.
For many years, PIAC has also worked closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in advocating for effective and adequate reparations to be made to members of the Stolen Generations and for the repayment of wages and entitlements held in trust by governments.
