Justice Week 2018 Programme

Justice Week 2018 Programme

Planning an event for a future Justice Week?

1. Check the programme and events calendar.  Don't worry if your event clashes with another - this is inevitable as many organisations are planning events during the week, all will hopefully attract different people and help us to spread justice messages to new audiences.

2. Check out our top tips information here.

3. Complete the events pro forma and send it to Simon Garrod and we will confirm it can be added to the programme of events.

4. Please use the hashtag #JUSTICEWEEK.
