What is Social Justice?

Social Justice can be defined as both a process and a goal. It is a process of changing culture and instilling values of fairness. It can help level the playing field and provide access to what every student needs to be successful: 

  • Basic needs (food, housing, warmth, rest, etc.)
  • Feeling safe while learning on and off campus;
  • Being part of something, engaged and valued as a human being;
  • Being acknowledged and being listened to;
  • Having the freedom and access to reach their full potential in academics, career, learning, and relationships.

All communities and identities interested in social justice are welcome.

  • This space is designated for students who have been historically underrepresented and underserved, including but not limited to students who identify as Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQIA+, disabled, undocumented, first generation, low income, system impacted and many more.
  • We aim to erase stigmas around race, culture, and class; to provide new avenues for dialogue to culminate in better understanding and eliminate the fear of differences.
  • We proudly join the effort to shift the culture and paradigm at El Camino College, to provide an equity lens and a greater appreciation of people for people.
