The Commission plays an important role to help advocates and local communities in the ACT understand and assert their rights.
The Commission also acts as a strong advocate for human rights.
As part of our role under the HRA, we intervene in court and tribunal proceedings that raise questions about human rights.
Please contact the Commission to discuss your training needs. We also have free e-learning software available on our website on the ACT Human Rights Act.
