OUR UPDATES

🏳️‍🌈✨ Happy Pride Month from Street Law! ✨🏳️‍🌈As we celebrate diversity and love in all its forms this Pride Month, we're proud to reaffirm our commitment to inclusivity and equality for all. 🌈❤️At Street Law, our FREE legal services are accessible to ALL, because everyone deserve access to justice and support. Whether you’re part of the LGBTQA+ community or an ally, know that you’re always welcome at Street Law. Transgender people face significant barriers in having their affirmed gender and name reflected on their official documents, such as their birth certificate, Medicare card, bank card and driver’s licence. This barrier becomes even harder to overcome when the person is experiencing homelessness. This is because many people who are experiencing homelessness have limited identity documents in their possession due to the documents being lost or stolen. We know how important it is for people to have their official documents reflect their chosen name and affirmed gender. We are proud to support people within the LGBTIQA+ community to break down community barriers by assisting them to obtain their identity documents.Let's continue to champion diversity, fight for accessible justice, and create a world where everyone's identity is respected and celebrated🌟🏳️‍🌈 ...

🌟 Street Law Centre's Regional Trip Update 🌟As our journey in Kalgoorlie comes to a close, we reflect on the incredible experiences and connections made over the past few days. 🌏On the third day of our trip, we joined the Bega Garnbirringu Health Service's weekly community BBQ, adding a legal twist to the mix with our pop-up legal clinic. Anna and Luella were on hand to provide legal advice to those who needed it. They spoke with four people and will be assisting them to resolve their legal issues. 📝💼 A huge thank you to the amazing staff at Bega for their warm welcome and support in hosting our legal clinic. Our final stop of the trip brought us to The Salvation Army Kalgoorlie Boulder, where we engaged in a meaningful discussion about homelessness in Kalgoorlie. It was heartening to see the enthusiasm from the Salvation Army team, who are now eager to collaborate with us and refer clients in need of legal assistance. 💼❤️This regional trip has been an eye-opening experience for our team. We've had the privilege of connecting with local services, gaining valuable insights into the challenges faced by those experiencing homelessness in the Kalgoorlie area, and witnessing firsthand the dedicated and passionate staff assisting those experiencing homelessness in the community. 🤝 ...

A big thank you to Sabrina ⭐Throughout the university semester, Sabrina has been dedicating her Fridays to putting her university learnings into action alongside our passionate lawyers. Coming to us from the University of Notre Dame, Sabrina embarked on a work placement with us. Sabrina’s time with us wasn’t just about ticking boxes; it was about providing Sabrina with the opportunity to grow her legal skills in a professional setting as well as getting an understanding of the community legal sector. Sabrina told us that she was “surprised with the level of responsibility over tasks and matters which allowed me to build my confidence in performing legal tasks.” Before her placement ended, Sabrina shared her thoughts on Street Law:“I was very impressed with the work that Street Law undertakes and how professional and knowledgeable the lawyers are – I have learnt so much. I would recommend to other law students to come volunteer here; it is a great placement for students to gain experience in.”It has been great working with and getting to know Sabrina. Thank you for all of your great work, we wish you all the best with your future legal career! And a big thank you to the University of Notre Dame for encouraging students to get experience in the CLC world. Notre Dame Law Students' Society ... See MoreSee Less
