20 February marks the United Nations World Day of Social Justice, an opportunity to uphold and promote principles such as gender equality and the rights of First Peoples and migrants. 

We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability. 

To welcome, celebrate and cleanse the site ready for our relocation to UCW’s Inner City Office at the beginning of the week, a Smoking Ceremony was held by Mitchell Garlett.  

Mitchell shared about the healing and medicinal benefits of the red gum leaves and welcomed all to country before inviting us to come and walk through the red gum leaves smoke.
