Social Justice Study Circle for Women
We live in a world in crisis, a world facing enormous social and ecological challenges. You’re probably a person who recognizes that a just and equitable society is vital if our families and communities are to thrive.
The Social Justice Study Circle offers a common ground for understanding our troubled world and exploring alternative futures. Every other month, it brings together women from different backgrounds to explore the gap between the ideals of justice and the everyday experiences of injustice. Through reading and dialogue it encourages creative and practical thinking from multiple perspectives, with the goal of creating informed global citizens committed to a just, equitable and inclusive world.
More than ever the world needs citizens who are prepared to engage with the complex social challenges that impact our communities and advocate for those who are underrepresented and vulnerable to exploitation.
