Social Justice is the pursuit of a world where everyone has equal access to opportunity and rewards regardless of their socio-economic class, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, creed, or national origin. Social Justice is based on ideas of equality and social change for the empowerment of all people. In pursuit of social justice, Coastal Carolina University’s Social Justice Research Initiative (SJRI) works in collaboration with diverse community partners to promote and integrate experiential learning, community-based research, and social activism.
