OUR FOCUS AREAS

Refugees

Refugees

There are 20 million refugees in the world today and almost 2 million asylum seekers. They have fled violence, unfair imprisonment, severe discrimination, and death and they need a place of safety. Yet the international community, including Australia, is not providing the protection they need. We invite you and your church to join us in seeking justice for them.

Gambling Reform

Gambling Reform

Australians lose $21 billion a year in gambling. Poker machines account for more than half of this. Of the 600,000 people who regularly play poker machines, 15% (95,000) have a gambling addiction and lose $4.5 billion per year. We’ve joined the Alliance for Gambling Reform and are inviting churches to spend time in 2016 calling for reforms to the gaming industry to be enacted.

First Nations

First Nations

The arrival of Europeans to Australia created massive pain, disruption and dislocation for Australia’s indigenous population. To this day we are still working through the consequences. A Just Cause is encouraging churches to get involved with Australians Together, a movement designed to build healthy, respectful relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.
