“Exploring the Justice in Social Justice”

Description: As implicit social justice discourse saturates­­ conferences, it may feel that we pursue the concept of justice but it is just beyond our reach. If interpreters are to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion, then the need to learn more about the systems we are trying to change is vital.  This workshop aims to provide doable tasks that fosters the ability to understand social justice on a practical level so practitioners may change inequities to avoid the only way injustice triumphs: doing nothing. Further, participants who recognize and apply multiple perspectives to participate in social justice discussions are in a better position to reflectively engage in productive discussions of the concept than those who do not.
