Join Liberty


I’m very clear that Liberty is needed for clear information about our world, and the way our minds work when it comes to difference and diversity, and it’s equally needed for human becoming and formation.

Reverend Mark Oakley, Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s


It’s about people, it’s about human rights, it’s about looking after each other and the values and ethics and morals behind it are so vastly important, because they’re so basic, and if we don’t protect those we’re all worse off.

Katherine Grainger CBE, British rower and 2012 Olympic gold medalist

I’m a great supporter of the precious things that we forget sometimes that we have in this country, but we have to fight to keep them alive and bright and well.

Joanna Lumley OBE, Actor and campaigner


What actually matters is the individual freedoms of individual people and unless the people can stand up and demand those freedoms they’re just going to be lost.

Caroline Criado-Perez, Campaigner



Stephen Cavalier As trade union lawyers, Thompsons recognise the crucial importance of human rights to protect individual and collective rights at work and to protect against exploitation, victimisation and mistreatment. Liberty does great work campaigning for effective human rights and exposing injustice. I would encourage all lawyers who care about justice to join Liberty.

Colin PassmoreI have been a proud member of Liberty for about three years now. I would be pleased to see more members of the legal profession, not just in the City but countrywide, joining up with Liberty and becoming members and supporting its many serious campaigns. It is one way in which the voice of the legal profession can be heard more loudly, more clearly and with better effect.
