PERTH I'll FIGHT DAY DETAILS...
RE: "I'll Fight Day" - Social Justice Conference.
The Salvation Army in Western Australia is hosting a Social Justice Conference on the 13th September 2008.
It will be held at The Salvation Army, Rivervale Corps (cnr. Norwood and Francisco Streets, Rivervale) from 9.30am to 4.30pm (with Registration from 9am).
The conference will have two main focus areas, Poverty and Human Trafficking.
The day will consist of guest speakers (including - among others - a group from TEAR Australia), video presentations, workshops, etc. and will engage your heart and mind around what you can do to help Fight these injustices.
There will be a special guest appearance of the Spirit of the Streets Choir. The choir was initially formed in late 2006 by the BIG ISSUE newspaper sellers of Perth. It finds its newer members among other marjinalised people, outside the reach of the mainstream community; the homeless, those with a mental illness, the disabled and those affected by drugs or alcohol.
There will be a crèche facility provided upon request (this must be pre-arranged - call Kathleen Pearce on 0417 972 936).
Lunch, and refreshments during the day are included in the low cost of the event.
$15 and $10 for Student/Concession.
By sharing with us your valuable reflections regarding the day, you will be given an opportunity to win a door prize! There will also be many resources available for your information and for purchase.
Please seriously consider spending the day with us.
