Moreland Together is an idea conceived in September 2016 by members of the Moreland community including representatives of local Christian and Muslim groups, civil organisations and local government.
While our inspiration for this social justice network is faith-driven, we want to build a united community movement that includes all demographics and voices of the Moreland area in promoting unity and solidarity in our wonderful multicultural community.
The core values underscoring this movement include:
- Striving to reflect and counter the systems of discrimination which isolate members of our community
- Providing an inclusive space where all voices are respected and valued.
- Social justice
- Hospitality and generosity
- Community building and resource sharing
Our mission is advocacy and event-based. I’ll Dine With You, is our first event and will take place on 4 February 2017, to coincide with the United Nations Inter-Faith and Harmony Week.
The founding group has decided to organise this event to promote our core values and bring the diverse community of Moreland together to celebrate our shared humanity.
We see this event as a launching space for initiating collaborative projects between and within our various faith and community-based groups.
