How do you define Social Justice?

CCRSB News - November 25, 2014 - Chances are if you put eight people in a room together and ask them, “What does Social Justice mean to you?” you will get eight different answers. As a society, we seek to find common understanding and meaning. So, when we are presented with a term or an idea that’s not easily defined it can be viewed as an unwelcome challenge. Normally that would be a problem.
That’s not the case for CCRSB’s Social Justice Lead Team.
