Social Justice

Defined as a concept extending from the legitimate and authentic human rights of which all are Creator endowed as so poetically described by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, we are thus due and owe it to ourselves and each other to act consistent with the dignity of the human person.

Imperfect as we are we often miss the mark. Where this happens systematically and or egregiously warrants our examination and action. Of particular concern are situations where the most vulnerable, the weakest among us, the least able to defend themselves, are preyed upon. When the most powerful in society actively prey upon the weakest, or encourage others to do so, those acts stand out as most grave.

Social Justice as a center of study and practice works to identify and assess egregious human rights abuses in our communities and in the broader society and work with other centers to develop the appropriate proportionate response.
