Our Theory of Change

Kingsford Legal Centre believes that a fairer legal system means removing barriers to justice
especially for people who experience disadvantage.
We believe that a fairer legal system requires systemic change to achieve social justice and
protect human rights.
We recognise the impact of colonisation and racism on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People’s
interaction with justice systems as well as the ways in which gender discrimination and intersectional
experience impacts on people’s access to justice.

Kingsford Legal Centre acknowledges the Gadigal and Bidjigal Clans, who traditionally occupied the Sydney Coast.
We respect those Elders, past and present, and thank them for allowing us to work and study on their lands
