Defining the phrase “Social Justice” is itself far from complex and can mean many different things to many people. Going into this Social Justice class, I wasn’t prepared to see the world for how it is and all of the injustice that comes with it. I started this personal manifesto off with a quote from Paulo Coelho because what he says is significant to how our generation will thrive justly in the coming years. To me, social justice means equal opportunity to all. Opportunity to be loved for who they are and be able to work and provide for their family, not based on their race, gender, or disability… etc. As complicated as it is, it is in the same way, very simple. I had the pleasure of reading a few books in this class and with those, the Bible, and my own past experiences, I have formed a personal view of what social justice means to me.
