What is Social Justice?

There is a burning question that we all wish to know at some point in our life. For some, it might be when they are going to die, if bald people get dandruff, or when the next world war will be. For others (like me) I wonder what justice is, particularly social justice. I took a course this fall that dove into this topic and honestly, I still have no clue. I think there is no definite answer because everyone has different perspectives. I narrowed it down to the idea that everyone should have an equal opportunity in the eyes of the law and the people.


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