HUMAN RIGHTS

 

Social justice is about change. Not just a change in politics, but in education, legislation and attitude. Change can only start when people open their hearts.

With qualifications in history, education and human rights law, social change is at the core of Ali MC’s creative and professional work. Combining studies at Australia’s leading universities and a wealth of on-the-ground community experience, Ali MC bridges the gap between academia and the real world. His legal work may see him meeting with Indigenous inmates one day and advocating to parliament the next.

Ali MC sees his legal skills as a means to advocate for those less able to speak out, such as promoting human rights on behalf of the Stolen Generations, and recording testimonies of abuse survivors.

He has also worked within education, teaching music in remote Aboriginal communities, developing multi-cultural workshops for Museums Victoria, and writing history curriculum on Indigenous rights and freedoms.

I'm extremely thankful to my mate and confidant, Alister McKeich, for the tireless manner in which he has worked on my behalf and of my family. Without his culturally respective, and sound advice over a number years, we would have been lost. I pay homage to Ali and so do my family and many more community members here on Wurundjeri ground.
