Welcome to Our Justice Page
The Justice Working Group at St. James is made up of a group of people committed to promoting peace, justice and the wise stewardship of our natural resources. The group seeks to be a place for people to share their concerns and obtain information. It looks at the causes of injustice from all sides, sets goals and takes action.
We hold membership on
KAIROS (Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives), the Toronto West Presbytery,
CEMA (the Burnhamthorpe/427 Community Center Project), LAMP, the Etobicoke Health Coalition, and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
Past projects have included, and in some cases continue to include, affordable housing, ending the clawback of Child Benefit cheques, same-sex marriage, the war in Iraq, immigration policies, working conditions, transportation, defence initiatives. We take an active interest in the policies of every level of government and the church.
You are welcome to join us. We meet the first Monday of every month at 7:30 p.m.
except in September and January, please see the calendar or call the church office to confirm the next meeting date.
