LASPNET to Commemorate World Day of Social Justice 20th Feb

Social justice is "justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society".  It  is  an  underlying  principle  for  peaceful  and  prosperous  coexistence  within  and  among nations. Social justice can  be  upheld in a number of ways such as  promoting gender equality and the rights  of  indigenous  peoples  and  migrants  such  as  the  right  to  health,  education  and  favorable employment,  among  others.    It  is  therefore  imperative  that  initiatives  geared  towards  removing barriers  faced  by  people  because  of  gender,  age,  race,  ethnicity,  religion,  culture  or  disability  are promoted.
