The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development

Justice Leadership Days

Thank you to all the students and teachers that participated in Justice Leadership Days in 2019 and made them such a great success. We are looking forward to meeting more future social justice leaders in 2020!


Early each year Caritas facilitates whole-day workshops around the country for secondary students responsible for raising awareness of justice and peace issues among their peers. 

The theme of the Justice Leadership Days in 2020 is 'To Be The Change' and challenges us all to be leaders for justice to hear their voices and respond using our own. Find out where our events in 2020 are below: 

Palmerston North Diocese: Tuesday 18th February at the Diocesan Centre, Palmerston North
