Social Justice studies seeks to promote justice, cultural diversity, critical thought, democracy, and inclusiveness. The subject arena ranges from race & ethnicity, women & gender issues, lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender (LGBT) studies, social class issues, disability issues, and other related areas including the intersection of these areas of study, primarily in U.S. context, with relevant linkages to global systems of oppression.
