2023 Gala Dinner & Civil Liberties Journalism Awards

In this, our 60th year, we come together to remember our history and honour the extraordinary activists who founded the Council. This will also be a wonderful opportunity to look to the future and create a clear call to action for the wider community to join us in the fight to protect civil liberties and human rights for all.

Hosted by the inimitable Meredith Burgmann, with our keynote delivered by human rights campaigner and activist Craig Foster, this night will set the tone for the next 60!
