Welcome to the Justice Club Project landing page.
In 2013 five people wrote a children’s book, aimed at 9-12 year old as part of a class project. The book introduced the topic of child labour, through a fictional story set in a middle school social studies class. Emily, Tim, and Leah, along with their classmates discover that children their age in other countries do not necessarily have the same experiences, privileges, fun and education they have come to expect, and this created exposure to the global issue of injustice. Sprinkled throughout the book were resources the reader, parent and teacher that could be studied to understand the issue of child labour around the globe.
Having dusted off the original manuscript in 2016 Bev, Lily and Peter, who were part of the original team, agreed that it was time to work on rewriting this story and launch it for the world to read and experience. In October 2016, a project has formed and the team is building. We are planning to launch in 2017 a new book and a resource portal for establishing a Justice Club in local schools, churches, and community groups looking to identify injustices in their neighbourhood, city, nation and around the globe and effecting an appropriate response.
Below are details of the project, what we still need, and our timelines for publishing. If you would like to be part of the team please contact Peter through his email link below.
