AEC joins World Day of Social Justice

Alternative Education Center joined the world in celebrating the World Day of Social Justice on February 20, 2024. World Day of Social Justice reminds us each year of the need to build fairer, more equitable societies. Advancing social justice is the central aim guiding all national and international policies. Societies and economies function more cohesively when social justice is prioritized.

AEC students played a card game to discuss ways to improve social intelligence. They explained how applying social intelligence could lead people to understand social justice and commit to advancing and protecting it. They discussed what social justice could look like in school and family settings. They used a coloring activity to demonstrate their message if they were to help promote social justice. Ultimately, AEC students discussed how the World Day of Social Justice celebration helps promote the global sustainable goals of reduced inequalities and peace, justice, and strong institutions.
