Promotions Team Leader Position Description and Application Procedure

About The Justice Project Macarthur The Justice Project Macarthur is a community action group concerned about global issues of poverty and injustice. The group began in 2010 and has hosted successful events such as 'The 40 Hour Famine Gig' showcasing local musicians at Camden Civic Centre and 'Summer Nights' outdoor cinema showing the films 'The Human Experience' and 'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' at Camden Town Farm. We also take opportunities to promote Fair Trade at local events, particularly in Fair Trade Fortnight in May. The group is focused on raising awareness in the Macarthur community of social issues such as hunger and food security, slavery and treatment of refugees. Our goals are empathy: encouraging the community to engage with and consider issues of poverty and injustice; education: raise awareness of social issues and give opportunities for locals to become better informed; empowerment: explore ways of responding and encourage active engagement.
