Social Justice Statement 2018-2019

25 November 2018

The Australian Catholic Bishops have published a Social Justice Statement, titled: A Place to Call Home: Making a home for everyone in our land.

The Statement highlights the challenge of homelessness in Australia – a problem that continues to grow despite the great prosperity of our nation. We are reminded that safe and secure housing is a human right that must be afforded to all. It is the inherent dignity of each brother and sister in need of a place to call home that urges us on to confront the growing challenge of homelessness and housing insecurity in Australia.
