Jana Katerinskaja

Local Champion

Jana is a senior human rights lawyer, an advocate for family and sexual violence victim-survivors, and a leader in police accountability reform. 

Jana is a strategic and highly effective advocate, motivated only by the desire to effect real change and spare other victim survivors from suffering the human rights abuses she did. 

Jana’s advocacy work is significant and has made a material difference to family violence response and intervention reforms in Victoria and beyond. 

Her long-term advocacy has resulted in momentous and ongoing change within Victoria Police and the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission. She delivers all these things altruistically, quietly and on top of her day job as a lawyer.
