What is social justice? What is white privilege and what does it look like in our society? While the Campus Y is dedicated to actively pursuing social justice, we are also committed to educating our community about what social justice is and how to get involved. We do not expect everyone who enters the Y to understand every aspect of social justice; we too are still learning and growing as advocates and allies. Below you can find resources to help you familiarize yourself with social justice ideas and terminology.
