World Social Justice Day

Let’s focus on promoting social justice and equality for all, emphasizing inclusion and diversity.


Here are 10 ways that you can advance social justice, individually and through alignment with like-minded people in your community and throughout the world.


1. Examine your beliefs and habits

Many of us hold onto beliefs that we learned as children, and they can influence how we engage in social justice. Positive action toward inclusion and advocacy begins at home.


2. Educate yourself about social justice issues
Navigating how to get involved can be overwhelming. The best way to start is to familiarize yourself with social justice issues you’re passionate about and research what is being done about them.

3. Take positive action in your own community
You can learn about issues within your community by watching local news broadcasts, reading the newspaper, and listening to podcasts. Write letters and call your elected city and state officials regarding the issues your community faces.


4. Harness the power of social media
Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms have become powerful tools for sharing messages with large audiences without leaving home. They provide resourceful ways to stay focused and organized around important causes. From joining groups to posting articles and sharing personal experiences, they can help facilitate community building, awareness, and collaboration.

5. Volunteer
Volunteering can take many forms, depending upon your availability. These websites, among others, can help you find volunteer opportunities that align with your interests.

6. Get involved with politics through civic engagement
Align yourself with candidates—in local, state, and congressional elections—whose platforms and policies will further the causes you believe in. Learning about their stances on social justice issues is an opportunity to push for equity. Consider volunteering at a phone bank, canvassing to raise awareness, or sharing on online platforms.

7. Make your voice heard on local radio
Many local talk radio programs ask for listeners to call in and offer their opinions on topical news stories, including social justice issues. This is a great way to join the conversation and share your thoughts with a wide audience.


8. Support minority-owned businesses in your community and online
As a consumer, you have the power to affect social justice change with every dollar you spend. In light of the recent Black Lives Matter protests, many businesses have vowed to give more visibility to Black-owned companies nationwide.8 Support local businesses that advocate for change and pay close attention to smaller, minority-owned companies.

9. Support artists, writers, and activists who speak out against injustices
Are your favorite musicians, authors, and other artists dedicated to social justice? By sharing their work on social platforms, you can help them gain the recognition they deserve.


10. Be kind, understanding, and compassionate
These are trying times. In dealing with our own issues, we may forget that we’re all in this together. Whenever you feel stressed out around other people, consider their circumstances and what they may be dealing with. Social justice, like charity, begins at home.
