THEMIS was an ancient Greek Titaness. She personified divine legality and social justice. She bore six daughters who were the Seasons and the Fates.
Social justice is based on the concept of creating societies which offer human rights, fairness and equality to all individuals. Access to health care, housing, education, food and legal aid should not depend on where you live, how much money you have, your race, gender or age. We live in an unjust world riddled with discrimination and exploitation which creates immense inequality in many parts of society. Social justice movements raise awareness of human rights for all people and encourage governments to change legal constructs to remove inequality.
We can all make a difference by :
– Examining our own beliefs
– Educating ourselves on Social injustice
– By taking action – by protesting, donating , volunteering…
I AM SOCIAL JUSTICE
“Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.” Helen Keller
