Welcome

“In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.” -Albert Einstein
 

WHAT IS OUR MISSION: The mission of the Justia Agenda is to create awareness of human rights and social justice issues using research, advocacy, the arts and education. Our activities foster dialogue and action on how human rights and social justice can be realized in everyday and professional practice.

WHO WE ARE: We are a collective of globally conscious researchers, practitioners, artists, educators, students, policy-makers, advocates/activists, and concerned citizens whose independent scholarly and creative ventures are designed to disseminate knowledge, values, and skills that will help improve the individual and community response to critical social issues and improve individual, family, and community well-being using ‘any media means necessary.

WHAT WE DO: Our activities that involve research, the arts, education, and advocacy provide a vehicle to disseminate information to raise critical consciousness and the recognition of psychological sociopolitical contexts in which justice or ‘injustices’ can occur. Transforming society first entails transforming ourselves to become “be the evidence we want to see in the world.” Through participation in self or group project-sponsored activities, we help promote the achievement of a socially just world in which human rights, social justice, and well-being are realized for everyone everywhere. On a daily basis, our lived reality challenges individuals, families, and communities everywhere to look inside to identify and eradicate oppressive attitudes, thoughts, and practices towards self and others and replace it with thought forms that foster equality, liberation, and peace.

MAIN ACTIVITIES: Research and Evaluation, Program Design and Evaluation, Policy, Advocacy, Public Education, and Social Work and Inter-Professional Education and Training.
