Social Justice is all about challenging injustice and valuing diversityin a community.

Background

Social justice is an underlying principle for  peaceful and prosperous coexistence. But while we can agree with this, many of us are at a loss when it comes to acting on or upholding the principles of social justice in our everyday lives. Issues on social justice occur as a result of unequal wealth and resource distribution, unfair treatment of individuals with differing traits (race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, etc.), and laws that support segregation.

Vision

 To promote social justice  all people, share a common humanity equitable treatment, supporting their human rights and a fair allocation of community resources. 

In conditions of social justice, people are not to be discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristics of background or group. 

 


Action

• Identify issues affecting individual or group. • Listen more, remember to always be courteous and open to hearing what others think and feel. Understand the dimensions of the issues and people involved. Initiative to support weak and vulnerable individuals or group in the community who are victims of social injustice of any kind. This could be done by speaking on behalf of them, raising concern, notifying the attention of local or regional leaders on to the issues. Support local organisations, contact and communicate with groups that fight for equality and basic human rights for all. Find the ones whose messages resonate most with you and find out how you can support their events and campaigns.

Adopt a politician

Write a monthly letter or email to your local member of council or parliament on issues that are important to you. Take action to support specific legislative initiatives or give your opinion and advice on what you think they should focus on.

Embrace diversity

Travel to neighbourhoods, communities and events that are ethnically focused, to gain a greater appreciation of diverse cultures. Communicate with people of different races, ethnicity, religion or age, to explore your prejudices and gain a better understanding of the issues affecting them.

Be a volunteer to support refugee/ emergency aid; your local shelters need you. Sparing some time to help others in need will help organisations struggling to respond to the demand for help.

The power of volunteering

It is food for the soul. Unexpected natural calamities affecting individuals /families and communities need large number of volunteers and various supporting measures including lifesaving measures, first aid, shelter, food, clothes, medical aid, etc.

Students must be involved to educate and motivate their colleagues to promote equality and fairplay. Student volunteers and peace community in schools can take initiative to provide information on social justice.

Practice what you preach

Remember social justice begins in the home. There is no point going out and urging others in the community to change their words and actions if you haven’t first looked at your own stamping ground. Get your children, friends or family members involved, and keep them informed and educated about social justice issues and human rights, it will help to give them a global approach and perspective to their schoolwork and their life – keeping in mind that they are the future.

We are

Let us join hands and forge ahead with our programmes for World Peace Mission. The ideal is to work for projects ‘on earth as it is in heaven’. We should notice the spark of divinity in everything and everyone and treat it with due respect and reverence. Feed the hungry, provide drink for the thirsty,  welcome the outsider, protect the privacy of the naked, provide nursing care for the sick and the dying, mark each life on earth and work sincerely for this aim, and to teach it and to inspire others to do the same. World Peace Mission is the stage for this enterprise.
