World Day of Social Justice: WMF Justice Stories

 

World Day of Social Justice, originally put on by the United Nations, is a day created to encourage individuals to look at how social justice affects poverty eradication while also focusing on the goal of achieving full employment and support for social integration.

In honor of this day and because social justice is so important to WMF, we would like to share 5 justice stories from over the years. We would encourage you to read through each of these articles and use them as a catalyst to inspire not only yourselves but for others as well, to work towards achieving social justice all over the world and in our communities around us!
