Social Justice Week 2018 Workshops

Come join us for workshops on disability and participation in our communities! We are joining with local Church organisations to hold interactive workshops in Hamilton, Palmerston North and Wellington throughout August.

As part of Social Justice Week 2018, we joined with Church organisations in Hamilton, Palmerston North and Wellington to facilitate workshops to help people recognise enabling and disabling communities and contexts, share ideas on how to be inclusive, and discuss concrete actions we can take towards creating more inclusive and participatory communities.

We reflected on disability and participation our community through the lens of Catholic social teaching in our Social Justice Week workshops.
