What is social justice is a very broad question to ask anybody, even a student in a social justice class. In my opinion, social justice has been the latest discussion in today’s society due to the crime rate, inequality in race and gender, and the hatred in the streets. Some people may consider that this is the main root of the definition of social justice. In my opinion, the definition of social justice is the foundation for a stable and safe community. It should reflect the characteristics of each person showing that a human has values that should be respected, despite your lifestyle and physical health. Only as we recognize the value and dignity of each person can we build a healthy community, so it's a slow, painful process of learning and growing.


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