The Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Group is hosting the 2020 Human Rights Oration next month with lawyer Lee Carnie as the special guest speaker.

Lee is a human rights lawyer and social justice advocate. Lee currently works as the Strategic Advocacy and Policy Manager in Civil Justice at Victoria Legal Aid, working on a range of issues including mental health, disability, economic inequality, anti-discrimination and migration.
