Keeping Hands Off Our Charities

Throughout 2018, the Hands Off Our Charities Alliance fought to make sure new foreign donation laws being debated in the Australian Federal Parliament did not impose undue restrictions on our vibrant civil society.

The Hands Off Our Charities Alliance - a network of environment, health, international development, youth, religious and service organisations - campaigned through direct lobbying, organising submissions to parliament, holding events, making phone calls and conducting media briefings.

Code Nation was honoured to build the campaign website for the Hands Off Our Charities Alliance, and we were doubly excited to see their campaign result in a massive victory. As a result of the hard work of the Alliance and other concerned groups the bill was heavily amended to protect Australian civil society and the valuable role it plays in our democracy.
