Welcome to Justice Action

The Justice Action Team

About Justice Action

Justice Action represents people locked in Australian prisons and hospitals, defending human rights in the hardest places. The movement to provide a voice, and to show support for prisoners dates back to when Australia was a penal colony. The movement arose in response to the inhumane slavery and degradation of convicts at that time. 

Justice Action (JA) continues that spirit and tradition by representing people affected by imprisonment and targeting the abuse of authority against other vulnerable individuals who are incarcerated. It funds its independence through the social enterprise Breakout Media Communications. 

In addition to its work in defending human rights, JA gives voice to the marginalized and excluded. JA believes that a positive change in Australia’s criminal justice and mental health systems requires these voices to be respected and embraced as part of the solution. 

JA aims to improve the social and mental health of prisoners and involuntary patients by providing prisoner, mental health and court support. It also engages in policy development, initiates campaigns and liaises with stakeholders. 

JA comprises prisoners, victims, families, students, lawyers, judges, members of parliament, the media and others who contribute their skills, knowledge, talents and support to redress the injustices of our judicial system.

We welcome all who wish to join us in our work!
