He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
Inspiring change starts with you
There are many powerful and exciting ways for you, your family, friends, congregation and local community to get involved in social justice action and advocacy.

By sending an email to your MP, you’re showing our decision-makers that these issues are important to the people they represent - and that you demand fair and compassionate legislation and policy.
As part of the Give Hope Campaign, we believe that the cruel and inhumane offshore detention regime must end - refugees and people seeking asylum deserve better than this.

The Social Justice Forum team, in partnership with Uniting Mission and Education, has developed a comprehensive advocacy training package. This aims to help and encourage Uniting Church individuals and congregations to speak out and take action on the social justice issues they care about.
The material is arranged in four sessions which includes the biblical and theological foundations for advocacy in the Uniting Church, a theoretical framework to guide planning for advocacy and some practical tools to apply that planning to the issues people care about. The package is flexible and participants can choose how many or which sessions they’d like to use.
For more information on Advocacy Training contact The Social Justice Forum for more details.
