Social justice is a phrase that seems to be overused. A catch-all phrase for all things humanly deviant, social justice is referenced when a group of people, person, or persons behave negatively toward other groups of people or persons because they have deemed them different. Thus, social justice, when applied to the resolution of the deviant acts of discrimination against others based upon their age, gender, religion, sexual preference, race, ethnicity, cognitive ability, culture, or a disability can be reframed as a proactive engagement for change at a societal level. Hence, social justice, although a seemingly vague phrase, requires a clear response of the conscious to end injustices.
