2015 Human Rights Community Award

Congratulations to Ludo McFerran, one of the finalists for the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) 2015 Human Rights Community Award.

WEL is so proud that so proud that Ludo has been recognised by the AHRC for her long history of working for the rights of women and children, specifically in conducting research and identifying innovative solutions to family violence. Ludo has had a key role in designing approaches to family violence that focus on housing stability and avoiding homelessness. Her advocacy in recent years has focused on family violence leave being incorporated into workplace agreements.

When announcing the finalists, President Gillian Triggs said:

"The Community Award recognises individuals and organisations that work for a fairer and more just Australia, often on a voluntary basis. It is fitting that several of the finalists are working to counter violence against women, at a time when domestic violence has been recognised as a blight on the country."

We couldn't agree more!
