What is it?
A gathering of like minded people to explore together Justice and Compassion issues at home, nationally and globally. Let Justice Roll Down is a social justice gathering, geared for 20-30’s age range in particular. The aim is to not just inspire young people to incorporate social justice into their lives, but also to create functional support and relationship groups for people who really want to do something practical about it. We hope to equip the attendees with actual actionable steps that they can take to play their part in social justice issues; to de-mystify how it all works.
Who is it for?
This gathering is open to all comers but specifically targets young adults (20-30’s) who are working in the Professions and Trades in NZ and who have a strong interest in justice related topics.
What will we be doing?
We’ll be listening to a few TED type talks presented by experts in their field; having lots of conversations and panel discussions, workshops, mentoring opportunities; praying and worshiping together; and enjoying good coffee and food.
