Social Justice and Stewardship Fair

Social Justice and Stewardship Fair

Social Justice and Stewardship Fair (very much like a science fair) raise awareness of social justice and provide us with solutions on how to challenge the problems. It gives voice to students concerns and outrage. We chose the name Social Justice and Stewardship Fair because it represents and outlook of the concerns of human justice and the ethical treatment of our planet. In other words Social Justice is fighting for the causes that include entire racism, entire discrimination and pro human rights while stewardship fights for causes like reducing our carbon footprints and being more environmental friendly and taking care of our natural habitat.
