  1. Hey everyone,

    I turned my presentation into a Voicethread Powerpoint presentation so I can add more explanation than what would fit on the page. You can watch and listen here: https://voicethread.com/share/12352934/

    In terms of answering the question, I believe the purpose of having social justice standards is to have a foundation of what is essential for basic human living. As we learned this week from multiple sources, human rights should be equal and shared among all humans. We need these standards as a guide and way of life to understand the minimum required when interacting with others that are different from us in any way. It represents a universal language with all cultures and different experiences of people from the world. This translates to treating everyone with equal respect and dignity, and not discriminating based on a personal characteristic such as race, sex, gender, socio-economic status, etc.
