CCL depends on the voluntary efforts of members and supporters for all our activities. The current challenges to civil liberties and rights and the demands on CCL exceed our existing volunteer capacity. We encourage members and supporters to consider getting involved in CCL's activities. This can vary from occasional public support of an activity to more intensive and hands on participation.

Get to know us and current issues: attend a committee meeting
Committee meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6pm. Let us know if you would like to attend, either via zoom or in person when the pandemic permits (when feasible, we meet at the Teachers Federation Building at 23-33 Mary Street, Surry Hills, NSW 2010).
Join an action group
Action groups come together around current civil liberties issues and much of CCL's policy and advocacy work is driven by them. Some groups focus on CCL's membership and supporter base and overall financial capacity to remain a key force for civil rights advocacy in Australia.
Join the CCL legal panel
CCL takes up court cases and related legal issues when a significant matter of principle or injustice is involved. Solicitors and barristers registered with the legal panel volunteer expert legal support for these CCL interventions
