Hands Up

Social Justice Committee

The Social Justice Committee is a Standing Committee of the Halifax Particular Council. 

 

Working for social justice involves identifying root causes of poverty and contributing to their elimination; affirming the dignity of each human being as created in God’s image; seeing social justice issues from the perspective of those in need; opposing discrimination of all kinds; fostering new attitudes of respect and empathy for those served in the mission of charity; and looking towards sustainable development and protection of the environment for the benefit of future generations.
