- Social justice embodies the vision of a society that is equitable and in which all members are physically and psychologically safe.
- Social justice also demands that all people have a right to basic human dignity and to have their basic economic needs met.
- Our commitment to social justice recognizes that health is affected by a host of social factors.
- It is not possible to address trauma and violence without also wrestling with poverty, racism, sexism, classism, homophobia and all other forms of stigma.
- Because of this, we cannot ignore deep seated inequalities as we seek answers to problems like violence and trauma. Rather, we must struggle with these problems clearly and honestly.
