Today is the World Day of Social Justice, an international day devoted to supporting “efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all”.

What conscious acts do you take on an every day basis to remove barriers between people and advance equality for all?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does. -Margaret Mead

Once social change begins it can not be reversed. You can not un-educate the person that has learned to read. You can not humiliate the person who feels pride. You can not oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. -Cesar Chavez

You must be the change you want to see in the world. -Mahatma Gandhi

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. -Martin Luther King, Jr
