Content for the Projects Membership page is currently under development - We want your feedback and input - please email Us with your ideas and suggestions for this page. As well we are seeking volunteers to get involved in making this a successful project.
Our grass roots are showing at the moment.
We understand that our 'grass roots' are very visible right now so if you noticed and can see how your input can improve us then don't hesitate to contact us as we are in need of people with an interest to assist us by taking part in the management of a page that touches where you are passionate and see the need for the development of a suitable article for inclusion in our Initial Draft and then later for inclusion in our Final Draft pages
Would you like to sponsor a particular page? Talk to us about your interest.
You can help by looking at some of our examples on pages like the Veterans page as these give a good idea on what an 'article' consists of and how it tries to describe in simple precise language the meaning and spirit of the article. The finished statement can take a while to get the precision needed however the first thing is to get down a description that can be discussed and refined to the point where it is clear and unambiguous about what it intends to provide for those that this particular article is addressing.
The Projects Membership page is in need of one or more financial or other sponsors Contact us to discuss the rewards of a sponsorship here at the Bill o'Rights project.

examples of articles from the Universal Declaration
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Why do we need a Bill of Rights in Australia?
Right now there is no legal obligation to provide or to protect Your Human Rights or the Human Rights of your children, family, friends or neighbors or any Australian citizen. This is a breach of trust that must be corrected.
A Bill of Rights is the first step in the process of enshrining into the laws of each State and Territory in Australia with an over-riding law set in place by the Federal government and by enshrining our right to be protected in our Constitution and the Constitution of each state and territory. When that happens you will then have Human Rights that can be protected via the legal system; currently this is not available to you or any other Australian.
The lack of Human Rights in Australia is a tragedy and a national disgrace
The lack of Human Rights in Australia has seen tragedy after tragedy where more than a million children have been abused and have no right to justice under our present laws; this has and continues to play a major role in the suicide of teenagers and survivors of abuse as children and the denial of the human right to justice by the Catholic and other Churches and institutions as shown by the recent Royal Commission.
The Australian Human Rights Law Centre states that "Australia is the only modern developed democracy not to enshrine human rights in a national law"

US Bill of Rights
George Mason was the principal architect of Virginia's Declaration of Rights. That document, which wove Lockean notions of natural rights with concrete protections against specific abuses, was the model for bills of rights in other states and, ultimately, for the federal Bill of Rights.
