Federal Government funding for the vital work of Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans (ACRATH) is uncertain after 30 June 2017.  ACRATH has been invited to apply for funding as part of a competitive grants program, however, given there is no guarantee of success, it needs to secure funding now. They need our help!
Good Shepherd presented the second Good Conversation forum, Economic Frameworks and women’s human rights on 28 June 2017. One of the biggest policy challenges for Australia is the recognition of domestic labour and its contribution to social cohesion and wellbeing. Domestic work, chiefly done by women, is not considered as productive work or economic participation.
The John Pierce Centre is excited to host the Deaf Catholic Conference in Melbourne, August 2017. It is the first in over a decade! The theme will be “Our Community of Faith - Reflect, Embrace and Nurture”. 
Join policy makers, researchers, advocates and others concerned with gender equity to hear about the limits of economics. Economics is the prevailing paradigm when discussing policy and our welfare policies also reflect this. For women, this narrative means care work can be undervalued. This feeds in to women’s lack of confidence about money and in their financial futures and, further, women’s relative economic disadvantage. While economic frames can be useful in some contexts, are they overused?
