This week’s prompt on Social Justice, Politics & Activism is:
As noted in an earlier 157SL class session, social justice can be defined as:

Fair distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges within a society; 
Fair and equal treatment irrespective of wealth, race, class, gender, ethnicity, religion etc. and 
Ensuring access and opportunity for all, especially those in greatest need,

1. With this definition in mind, describe an example of a LACK or ABSENCE of social justice that you have observed either at your service site, in your community, in your life, or in the news. Explain how this instance constitutes a lack/absence of social justice. What circumstances led to this situation? What practical steps could be taken to restore social justice in this situation?
2. Describe a concrete example (whether from personal experience, observations, or history) in which activism has been successfully employed to bring about social justice. Why do you think activism was successful in this instance?
