What is social justice? Okay, wow what a loaded question. I think that social justice can be a little different for everyone. It all depends on how you were raised and the people you are surrounded with. We as humans get a lot of our ideas from others, and we then form our own ideas based off those ideas. Social justice has many different meanings for me alone, much less the entire world. I think that there is an endless number of definitions. It is hard to know where to begin. I believe that social justice includes a wide variety of different topics such as racism, sexism, ableism, homelessness, poverty and a plethora of other topics.


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