The World Day of Social Justice is celebrated every year on February 20, 2023 to promote the
importance of fair and just relations between the individual and society. The day also tackles issues such as poverty, exclusion, gender equality, human rights, and social protections.
Social justice refers to the fair division of resources, opportunities, and privileges in society. It emphasizes fairness in how society divides its social resources. It is based on the concept of Equality and Equity. The significance of Social Justice is to ensure that everyone gets the essentials for a good life, gets adequate health care and also to eliminate all kinds of discrimination.
In the present generation, one of the crucial ways to attain Social Justice is through Literacy. Literacy is the foundation for educational, social, and economic success. Literacy helps to realize basic human rights and helps in reaping the benefits that law offers to all citizens.
People become aware and can make informed decisions and understand the rights accurately. Positive action towards inclusion and advocacy begins at home. Becoming a strong ally in a social justice movement requires ongoing self-reflection, learning, and openness to growth.
