JOURNEYS TO JUSTICE Canadian churches have made a huge impact on key justice issues over the past 50 years on education, economics, refugee sponsorship, the environment, domestic violence, public health care, women's rights, and the cancellation of the debts of Global South countries. But as the years go by, has this momentum been lost? A new book from Citizens for Public Justice's Joe Gunn features interviews with ten key people who have been active in social justice struggles across Canada for many years. How did Christians from varied ecumenical backgrounds work together to help end apartheid, admit refugees from Chile and Indochina, defend Indigenous Peoples' rights, promote economic justice, and more?
