Social Work and the Ideals of Social Justice

The news has been filled with issues of race, religion, gender equality, and many other topics of social justice. Social justice is the idea that every person deserves equal opportunities in every facet of life. The University of New England helps us understand the role of social workers in the world of social justice including equal political rights and opportunities (including civil rights), equal social rights and opportunities (including housing), and equal economic rights and opportunities (including employment). Social workers dedicate their lives to the ideals of social justice, striving to create an equitable society for all and make real positive change in people’s lives.
