The Animal Justice Party (AJP) is a political party that was formed in response to the growing number of voters who feel strongly that much more needs to be done through the Australian parliamentary system to assist the wellbeing of animals.
With three Members of Parliament elected in just four years the Party is rapidly becoming a political powerhouse for animals. Our Victorian and New South Wales MPs are already taking huge steps forward for animals, holding the government to account, and introducing bills to end animal cruelty.
Our vision is a planet on which animals are treated with respect, dignity, compassion and kindness, where they are able to flourish in their respective environments, and where their unique needs and capabilities are recognised and their interests protected. To achieve this we believe there is a need for animal representation at all levels of politics and we have already shaped the creation of more animal friendly policies at both a state and federal level.
