The annual Walter Lippmann Memorial Oration
The Walter Lippmann Memorial Oration is hosted annually in honour of the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria founding member, Walter Lippmann.
Together with our partners, VITS LanguageLoop, we were honoured to present a leading advocate and orator, Julian Burnside QC
Just as Walter once did, the oration pays homage to migrants, human rights, and support for cultural diversity.
Julian is a respected Australian lawyer and human rights advocate best known for his condemnation of the Federal Government’s off-shore processing regime of asylum seekers.
We thank the Lippmann family for the ongoing support.

We are proud to recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, as the first Australians, cultural leaders and traditional custodians of the land from which we advocate for ethnic community groups. We pay our respects to their elders, past & present.
