Advocate 4 Justice
Social justice exists when "all people share a common humanity and therefore have a right to equitable treatment, support for their human rights, and a fair allocation of community resources." People should "not be discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background or group membership." (Toowoomba Catholic Education, 2006). Advocate 4 Justice promotes and raises awareness on non-discriminatory arrests, logical incarcerations and prison sentencing, and other matters related to the social well-being of the public.
Advocate4justice raises awareness regarding a more fair, non-biased criminal justice system; one where punishments fit the crime, rehabilitation is an objective for non-violent offenders, and one where effective re-entry tools are in place and readily available for those who've completed their sentences. Further, Advocate4justice raises awareness on unwarranted, targeted crimes that results in unnecessary loss of life of unarmed people.
