World Day of Social Justice

This year, we recognized World Day of Social Justice on Monday, February 22. WDSJ is aimed to promote human dignity, and recognize the barriers people face due to gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, disability or other factors. These barriers can be manifested in poverty, exclusion, unemployment, micro aggressions and more. In order to raise awareness of these inequalities, GlobeMed at Whitman made signs with striking statistics concerning social justice and hung them around campus.

In order to promote discussion and awareness we also wrote the statement “I believe everyone is entitled to _____.” and asked the Whitman community to fill in the blank, here are some of their responses:
