This course will develop students’ ethical and philosophical reasoning skills by exploring issues of injustice in a local and global context. Students will examine inequality and injustice based on various social factors, while investigating cause(s) and consequence(s) of injustice. Students will work to invoke change to become ethical and socially responsible global citizens. Topics include: animal rights, media, consumerism, propaganda, child labour, homophobia, Indigenous rights and reconciliation, women’s rights, racism, global issues, environmentalism and social justice “heroes”.
Social Justice in the Community:
