After 18 years of social justice advocacy and action, Uniya, the Jesuit Social Centre in Sydney, closed its doors on 31 May. “Uniya” is the local name for the first Jesuit mission to Aboriginals on the Daly River in the late 1800s and means “meeting place”. The Centre used to provide research, advocacy and public education on matters of social concern to the Australian community, applying principles of Catholic Social Teaching to contemporary social questions.
