A Hub for United Church Social Justice Efforts
Jane Dawson, Regional Minister: Justice
My primary work as Regional Minister for Justice is supporting and connecting United Church Communities of Faith and people who are engaged in the social justice work of the church, in the Pacific Mountain Regional Council.
One important aspect of my role is to also explore the theological and scriptural grounding that guides our actions for peace, equity and compassion. This excites me greatly. Having left Ontario this summer I am now on the west coast, and very glad to be joining the PMRC.
The information on this page will change as the work, mission and community of people passionate about social justice in the regional council meets here. For information on PMRC justice initiatives, don’t hesitate to contact me.
