The End Of Life Choice and the Cannabis Referendums:

Be informed before you Vote

There are two important referendums (alternative spelling is referenda) at this year’s General Election (now in October) in which New Zealanders will be asked to make important choices for the future shape of our society. They involve issues of justice, equity, value and law. They affect you and your whānau.

 

The Transitional Cathedral and Theology House collaborated to run seminars where informed speakers explained the question that will be asked at the referendum.Both of these are great resources for group discussion within parishes.
