The simple definition for social justice is “a concept of fair and just relations between the individual and society”. However, most people lack depth and true understanding about the social world and its ups and downs. Every society has a lower class as well as an upper class. No matter how well a society thrives, there is always going someone who isn’t caught up. It’s those who help the poor, the sick, and the ones who suffer injustice that shall be considered superheroes without capes. Personally, I strive to be in the criminal justice field for those who can’t defend for themselves. Most people describe lawyers as greedy and trying to win cases for their own benefit. I would not be practicing law for the money or for the feeling of winning, but rather the feeling of helping someone who has been shunned by society and suffers the effects of injustice. Social justice, in my own words, is a community helping the victims of injustice.
