What is Social Justice?

Social justice is a concept that advocates for "fair treatment of all people in a society, including respect for the rights of minorities and equitable distribution of resources among members of a community" ("Social Justice," n.d.). It is a "standard used to assess the fairness of a society" (Blomley, 2009).

Social justice spans different aspects of life including political equality, economic equality, legal equality, and social equality. The resources below will introduce you to social justice concepts and issues.
