Here are some more Social Justice Web-based resources for you. Most of these are youth/young adults focussed but the information is for everyone.

JustAct is about taking action against instances of injustice in our local community and our world. It is about being part of creating change, no matter how big or small the contribution is, every voice counts! In signing up you will receive a monthly SMS or email alert informing you a new justice action is up on the web and ready for you to act.

Global Issues is a summary information website on Global Issues of social justice (funny enough). Its about informing us about the Social, Political, Economic and Environmental Issues That Affect Us All.

The Oaktree Foundation is an entirely youth run aid and development organisation. We are driven by young people under the age of 26. We believe that education is the key to making lasting change. This page summarises the latest campaigns that you can get involved in.

Stir Your World is a youth initiative of World Vision Australia, aimed at stirring up young people to take action in an unjust world.

We Are What We Do is a movement. We’d like to inspire people to use their everyday actions to change the world. Whoever they are. And wherever they are. And that includes you. We’ve created 50 simple, everyday actions that can improve our environment, our health, and our communities, making our planet and the people on it much happier. We started by putting these actions in a book, but the whole movement is getting bigger. And bigger.

Get Up Australia!is a new independent political movement to build a progressive Australia. GetUp brings together like-minded people who want to bring participation back into our democracy. GetUp.org.au members use the latest online tools to act on important issues facing the country. Whether it is sending an email to a member of parliament, engaging with the media, attending an event or helping to get a television ad on the air, GetUp members are always only ever asked to take targeted, coordinated and strategic action.
