There is this infamous question that has dangled over our heads for hundreds of years, starting back to B.C. The question is simple but complex at the same time, what is social justice, and how does it have anything to do with me? I myself have thought this question long before taking this course. I had no clue the impact injustice had on me nor the calling I had to make a difference.

Throughout our day to day lives, especially when we are younger, social justice or even justice alone isn't a part of our vocab or daily thoughts. It isn't really until we experience first hand or witness injustice that we begin to formulate opinions and morals when it comes to the justice system and humanity.


This paper was submitted as part of the Introduction to Social Justice course (SJUS 1003), taught by Dr. Myra Houser.
