Bringing the tribes of the Australian church together, to speak up for the world’s poor in our nation’s capital.
For experienced campaigners and beginners alike, Voices for Justice is a unique opportunity to gather with like-minded Christians and to meet your MP and state Senators.
Micah’s approach to advocacy is gentle and respectful. You won’t be standing on a picket line or chanting slogans. We engage relationally with politicians, meeting them in their offices in small groups. You will be trained to share an understandable yet compelling message of justice for the world’s poor.
This year, advocacy and lobbying will focus on: the Australian aid budget, humanitarian and refugee policy and modern slavery legislation.
