World Day of Social Justice

“Privilege does not have to be negative, but we have to share our resources and take direction about how to use our privilege in ways that empower those who lack it.” -Bell Hooks.

Asians and African Americans are more likely to report a negative experience because of their race or ethnicity than other groups. Research says that about 4 in 10 African Americans say the police have unfairly stopped them because of their race or ethnicity. And not just race or ethnicity, equality is necessary for all aspects – age, gender, nationality, caste, or creed. Only when we look beyond these social barriers can we see the accurate picture of oneness and harmony in our world.

Celebrated on March 20 is the World Day of Social Justice. This celebration recognizes social justice as the need of the hour. It promotes raising awareness and working on poverty, gender inequality, unemployment, and fundamental human rights for all.

Goodera has enlisted some nonprofits that aim to achieve social justice through formal employment in 2022 and beyond.
