Just Action 2017

Just Action is a leading social justice conference organised by The Salvation Army Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit. Drawing first class speakers globally and within New Zealand, Just Action provides a place to discuss, debate and inspire socially just solutions for some of New Zealand's toughest social and economic problems. The conference has built a reputation as a place of inspiration, learning and challenge for those who want to develop a more socially just and equitable society in New Zealand.

This year's event

This year, the conference will be focused on confronting some of the biggest social issues facing us today in Aotearoa New Zealand. As election year picks up the pace, what could it look like to build a just future in housing, for our children, for our multi-cultural society, for refugees, and for our economic system? What could it look like to have a gospel-based socially just future in the wider Church and in our society? 

The conference will be particularly drawing on local experts from various fields - with an emphasis on contextual justice that is built here, in the land of the long white cloud.
