Eglinton St. George’s United Church – Compassionate Justice Speakers Series

In 2010, ESG formed a Compassionate Justice group to learn about the changes in direction and legislation to Canada’s Criminal Code being proposed by the federal government. Since then they have run a Speakers Series, A Justice System for a Just Society. In 2016, they began to broaden the scope of the Compassionate Justice Speakers Series to include a more complete range of social justice issues and concerns.
