Abstract

The term social justice is a very broad word with many both positive and negative connotations for different people. It is hard to define a term whose meaning is subjective to the one talking about it. As I have been growing in my knowledge at Ouachita about injustices in the world, life in general, and my faith, my perspective on many things have shifted as well as been widened. My first thought at the beginning when I chose Social Justice was that I want to learn to help people like Christ as I prepare for law school. That was it. Now, I have a grasp (even though it is small and constantly changing) on the vastness of what social justice really means. Social justice is the pursuit of equity in the community and society as a whole, working to fix laws, or other restrictions, which cause individuals to become stuck in the problems they face, while caring about each individual.
