What is Social Justice?

Social justice is broadly defined and includes, but is not limited to domains of justice such as ecological/environmental justice, economic justice, food justice, health justice, and identity justice that affect individuals across our local, regional, and global community.  The goal of social justice is to create communities from a local and global perspective that are fair and equitable based on conditions outlined in documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
