Catholic Justice & Peace Network Pledges to Close the Gap

At their conference in July 2011, the National Justice & Peace Network made a Pledge to Close the Gap - and encouraged their supporters to do the same.

Ellen Teague of the National Justice & Peace Network writes:

More than 300 Justice and Peace activists attending the annual conference of the National Justice and Peace Network (NJPN) in Derbyshire agreed to help ‘Close the Gap’ between the richest and the poorest in UK society. Anne Peacey, Chair of the NJPN, signed onto the campaign organised by Church Action on Poverty. ‘Close the Gap’ aims to reduce levels of poverty and inequality in the UK, to speak out where Government policy adversely affects the most vulnerable, and to promote fair working conditions for the poorest so that low-paid workers have dignified, life-enhancing employment.
