WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE

World Day of Social Justice is an international day recognizing the need to promote social justice, which includes efforts to tackle issues such as poverty, exclusion, gender equality, unemployment, human rights, and social protections. It was founded by the United Nations in 2007.

The RVU Social Justice Contest

We are holding a contest to promote World Day of Social Justice by calling for nominations of RVUers who are advancing the cause in some way. This can be in one of many areas:

  • Poverty and homelessness
  • Gender equality
  • Race equality and anti-racism
  • Discrimination and prejudice
  • Disability rights
  • Unemployment and job training
  • Human rights and protections
  • LGBTQ+ rights and equality
  • And many more

Nominate an RVUer who you think is doing amazing work in the name of social justice and they could win an incredible prize!
