Social justice begins with me

 

 

What is a memoir?

A memoir is a narrative, written from the perspective of the author, about an important part of their life. 

Memoir authors choose important moments in their lives and present these moments in a more natural language than a traditional autobiography. Memoirs give more of an insight into the author, their memory of their lives, and the inner thoughts that drive them. 

 

 

What is Social Justice?

Social justice can look like many different things and can manifest in many different ways but the main principles of Social Justice are:

  • Equal RIghts
  • Equal Opportunity
  • Equal Treatment

Social justice is creating fairness and equality in the social, institutional, and governmental aspects of humanity. It is recognizing, supporting, preserving, and fighting for EVERY person's basic human rights.
