Social justice. Two words that you have no doubt seen or heard about on campus and around the country. But what is it? And how can we relate it to ourselves and the students we work with?
Dr. Jonathan White is an associate professor at BSU in the department of sociology. He has advised two student organizations focused on social justice: the Social Justice League and Free the Children (BSU chapter). Dr. White serves on the board of directors for Free the Children, an international organization that has aimed to free children from poverty and exploitation, and empower youth to make a difference. He also does extensive work with Me to We, an enterprise that provides socially responsible products and services. Professor White has published several articles on social justice and has recently co-edited two related books Sociologists in Action: Sociology, Social Change, and Social Justice (2nd Edition) and Sociologists in Action: Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality alongside his co-authored textbook The Engaged Sociologist: Connecting the Classroom to the Community (4th Edition).
