Who we are
We are a small group of citizens living on the Mornington Peninsula who are committed to promoting in our municipality and beyond understanding of and respect for human rights through programs of community education.
When we began in 2006 we were an open and informal group with minimal structures. Since 2008 we have had a constitution which has formalised our aims, given us elected office bearers and a committee of management and defined our membership. Members pay an annual subscription of $20. Our meetings are still open and informal, and we continue to welcomed the participation of people of good will who share our commitment to human rights.
People from many backgrounds are involved. Some have an ongoing commitment to our work and regularly participate in our monthly meetings, others have limited their involvement to supporting particular projects. We maintain a database of people who wish to be kept informed about our activities. We publish an email newsletter called Connect.
While we value the help of people with professional knowledge and skills, we are not a professional group offering legal advice, counselling services or assistance in advocacy. All our work is done by volunteers.
We continue to be very grateful for the support we receive from the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and its officers.
