Justice Camp began as a grassroots movement within the Anglican Church of Canada. It brings together people of all ages from across the country to encounter a variety of social justice issues up close and first hand. Through a program of directed immersion experiences, biblical reflection, worship, and relationship building, participants will form friendships and develop skills to become effective social justice leaders within their own local communities.
The eighth Justice Camp Bien Común: Promesa del Reino de Dios/Common Good: Promise of the Reign of God was hosted by the Diocese of Niagara and the Episcopal Church in Cuba from April 30-May 7, 2016. The focus was on economic justice, food security and social engagement. 25 Cubans and 25 Canadians participated in immersion sessions in Matanzas and Havana Provinces on issues relevant to the changing economic context of Cuba and urban poverty, sustainable food security, and citizenship and faith toward a future grounded in the common good.
