Adults, youth and children are encouraged to dive into one of the social justice issues impacting our community today.
The event happens on Saturday, October 26, 2019, and will be held in the Hamilton area. The day begins and ends at Christ’s Church Cathedral Hamilton.
Each person can choose an issue and spend the day exploring its impacts and how to partner with people to make a difference. Each small group will be facilitated by a program volunteer and a local issue expert.
The immersion experiences will include food security, Indigenous Justice: Doctrine of Discovery, purging plastic and waste-free shopping, urban farming and junior justice (ages 5-12).
You will get hands-on experience guided by a local expert, resources relevant to your home community and skills and tools to enable you to make a difference where you live. All of this will be set within a community passionate about faith-based social justice. There will also be a debriefing your experiences and worship.
More details can be obtained from Congregational Support and Development Staff Sarah Bird (Children, Youth and Family Ministry) and Deirdre Pike (Program Consultant, Social Justice & Outreach).
