Changes to Look for in 2013

Watch out for our next newsletter in February 2013. It will tell you about a significant shift in the way the Robson Hanan Trust, and its two major initiatives, ‘Rethinking Crime and Punishment’ and ‘Justspeak’ will function. Our vision however, remains unchanged – to promote public and political awareness of effective criminal justice policy, and movement toward a tolerant, inclusive and safe society.

Chuck Colson and the Ministry of Reconciliation

In this last edition for 2012, Rethinking takes a rest from featuring analysis and comment on criminal justice policy and practise. Instead, Kim Workman reflects on the nature of our work, and the vision for a more compassionate, crime-free society, by sharing a couple of stories about the late Charles ‘Chuck’ Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries USA, and Prison Fellowship International, from his 2005 visit to New Zealand.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
