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