Participants will explore the meaning of social justice as well as current social justice issues that are occurring in our society today. By analyzing social conflicts, the participants will work towards understanding key terms such as “solidarity” and ‘marginalization” in an effort to leverage their Pacific Islander identity in today’s social justice context.
