Students for Social Justice is an exciting new initiative to encourage
young people to become more informed and more active on social justice
issues. The project will train university students and recent graduates
to deliver workshops at local high schools about issues of inequality
and democracy in Canada and around the world.
The project is being launched by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ),
with the support of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation,
the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Federation, and many other groups.
The CSJ conducts research, education and advocacy in an effort to
narrow the gap between rich and poor, challenge the corporate
domination of Canadian politics, and press for policy changes that
promote economic and social justice.
