Social Justice Explained
When one looks around and sees people sleeping on park benches, a family of five packed into a small run-down two-bedroom trailer, eviction notices on doors, and a smart young man sent to jail for selling drugs, he asks “where is justice?”. He might think this world is hopeless. While social injustice is prevalent, there are people working towards social justice by changing the broken systems within society. Social justice isn’t just an ideology like some people believe. It is a methodology. Social justice is changing the systems within society that lead us to devalue human beings.
