the lingo

full and equal participation of all groups in a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs
includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure
what is social justice?
social justice is a process and a goal
equitable distribuition of resources
equal access to those resources
particpation from all members of society
unearned, unasked for, often invisible benefits and advantages not available to members of targeted groups
systematic subjugation of target groups by those with social power (privileged groups)

what do you see?
social change model of leadership
SCM describes leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-driven process, instead of a title or position.
Being committed to the common good does not mean becoming a saint
"Social Justice is not a single act but a way of life. It is the conscious decision to challenge oneself and others to refrain from participating in systems of oppression that help to maintain inequity and the status quo."-Annice Fisher
are you ready?
how do you identify?
Leaders try to improve the groups or communities they are part of and facilitate positive social change at the institution or in the community.
The model explicitly promotes the values of equity, social justice, self-knowledge, personal empowerment, collaboration, citizenship, and service.
The goal of the process is the hope to make positive change
The SCML is grounded in the belief that everyone can contribute to making the world a better place for current and future generations
Recognize that you can proceed step by step-take the long view
Cesar Chavez did not step into his major role-he began with a job with a Latino civil rights group
Each step, no matter how awkward or hesitant, prepares us for the next
You do not become an expert on social issues before getting involved, you become an expert thorough involvement and learning from that experience
We must not , in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make, which, over time, add up to the big differences that we often cannot foresee. ~Marian Wright Edelman
