Quality public engagement around justice issues is critical. Our understanding of what is meant by ‘justice’ has real and immediate impacts on our lives and the health of our community. Loddon Campaspe CLC believes that an open dialogue around issues of justice is essential to the success of our work. Talking Justice invites us to ask if there is always a clear and just solution to every problem. It challenges us to enter into a conversation about justice that respectfully acknowledges different perspectives. And it asks us to consider the place of the law and justice in a free society.
Press Freedom in Australia
17 February 2020, Bendigo Town Hall, Bendigo.
Our 2020 event included a panel of high-profile speakers discussing press freedom, the mounting pressure on journalists in Australia, your: ‘right to know’, and whether anything should be ‘off-limits’ to the press. It was our most popular Talking Justice to date, with over 350 attendees coming along to hear Richard Ackland, Annika Smethurst, Matthew Ricketson and M.C. Jon Faine share their insightful commentary. #RightToKnow
