Over the course of this semester, I have studied society and the justice system that is connected to it. When answering the question, “What is Social Justice”, it is not something easily answered in just a sentence or two. Social justice is a complex matter that is ever-changing and being newly defined each day. In simple terms, I define social justice as bettering society through the laws and regulations set to the society itself. It is finding balance among those living in society. Obviously, it is not physically possible to please everyone, but the social justice system strives to accomplish this. As a whole social justice is finding the balance, regulating terms, and determining right from wrong in a given society.
