Central Coast for Social Justice – Who are We?

Central Coast for Social Justice is a community of people, committed to constructive, informed conversations and actions about social justice. In October 2018 we became an incorporated, not for profit organisation.
Our focus has been and will continue to be on asylum seeker/refugee policy. However, in February 2019, we consulted with our CC4SJ community to identify their top 3 social justice issues. In addition to asylum seeker/refugee issues, our members chose Climate Change and issues concerning our First Nations peoples.
