Voices for Justice 2014
Saturday 21st - Tuesday 24th June 2014
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute"
- Proverbs 31:8
What is Voices for Justice?
Voices for Justice is your opportunity to gather with like-minded Christians across Australia and raise your voice to influence government policy for the benefit of the world’s poorest people.
Who is it for?
Anyone who desires to be inspired, informed and equipped to put faith into practice and see justice for the world's poor. A youth program is available for senior high-schoolers
Where is it?
The gathering will be held over four days in Canberra.
What will we do?
We will spend the first two days in a relaxed conference environment involving advocacy training, theological teaching, worship, prayer and workshops. We then spend two days putting into practice what we have learnt by meeting with politicians in Parliament House, engaging in political forums and hosting other special events to put global poverty alleviation on the national agenda.
Why should you come?
Voices for Justice is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to connect faith and action through engaging with issues of global inequality and learning how you can make a difference. You will discover the power of using your voice to advocate for the voiceless and influence key policymakers in our country to keep global justice high on our nation's priority list.
Check back here shortly for more information in early 2014, including program and registration details, information for schools and other groups, and more resources in the lead up to conference.
Registrations open January 20th.

“God loves and defends those with the least economic and social power,
and so should we. That is what it means to ‘do justice'."
