One of Law for Change’s affiliated organisations, JustSpeak, has been featured in the August 2013 issue:

Matters of Substance – featuring JustSpeak

Opinion — hurt people hurt people

Young people are often on the fringe of policy discourse, but JustSpeak, a youth-led organisation, has forged a strong voice on justice and corrections issues. Here, JustSpeak explains their youthful perspective on New Zealand’s justice system and asks whether positive progress is possible.

It is a fantastic quality piece and well… what else can I say? Our youth need a voice and I am glad to see it in this magazine. Kudos JustSpeak !
