Established June 10, 2008 by the United Nations, the World Day of Social Justice is an international day recognizing the need to promote social justice. This includes addressing issues like poverty, exclusion, gender equality, unemployment, human rights, and social protections. The 2020 theme is “Closing the Inequalities Gap to Achieve Social Justice.”
We want to highlight a few South Carolinians and organizations who have been or continue to serve as advocates for social justice issues.
