The Jessie Street Trust promotes and celebrates the groundbreaking life of Jessie Street.

Each year, the trust brings together an inspiring group of professionals and academics from all sectors for the Annual Lunch. It serves as a fundraiser to support campaigns and projects around Australia that promote Jessie’s values– the rights of women and indigenous people, peace and disarmament, and the elimination of discrimination.
