What is social justice? Social Justice is the assurance that the basic human rights of all people are upheld. In the first unit you will examine your own beliefs and understandings and perspectives. You will go on to examine social justice issues such as racism, homophobia, sexism, poverty, and globalization. This course will offer you the opportunity to look at the causes and consequences of oppression and injustice, both in Canada and globally. This is a project and research based course.
