Social justice is the pursuit of equal rights and equal opportunity for all people in our community. Social justice seeks to redress the impact that social, environmental and economic inequalities have on both the people experiencing it and the wider community.

Human rights are the rights that belong to everyone. These rights are recognised as the basic standards required for governments and communities to operate in a respectful and peaceful manner. Our approach to advancing social justice is underpinned by equity, inclusion and human rights.

In 2017 Council endorsed its Human Rights and Social Justice Framework 2017-2021, committing itself to championing and addressing human rights and social justice at a local level.

Council undertook a review of the Framework in 2022, to understand the changing landscape of health inequality, changes to international, national and state policy and opportunities to strengthen its role and responsibilities in upholding human rights and advancing social justice for the Maribyrnong community.
