Introducing Justice Mail


How to Improve the World in Five Minutes

Nearly everyone would like to do something to make the world a better place, but it is hard to know where to start and what to do.  Of course, there are many campaigning organisations like Save the Children Fund and Oxfam, but it takes time to trawl the many websites and make a decision.  Justice Mail makes it easy for you.  You give us your email address; we do the work and send you an email with an action you can take right away.  The emails will come to you once a fortnight.  It costs you nothing but a few minutes of your time.  You do not have to act on every email, and you can opt out of the system at any time by simply asking your email to be removed from the list.

Justice Mail began in Kings Heath at All Saints Church in the High Street, and has spread to other parts of the Midlands.  It now has about 500 people using it regularly.  It is set up with a constitution and a Board of Management which consists of the various people who manage the different local email lists.

Actions are selected from an approved list of 22 organisations including Oxfam, Amnesty International, War on Want, Shelter, The Refugee Council and several others.  

Justice Mail users have said:

“It is so useful to receive a regular reminder of what to do”.

“Using Justice Mail has made me more aware of what’s going on in the UK and in the wider world”.

“Many of the campaigns Justice Mail sponsors do succeed in changing things, and I feel satisfied that I have played a small part in this”.
