World Day of Social Justice

The sun which is the star that occupies the center of the solar system shines bright providing light to every living being equally and air that fills the environment is correspondingly distributed among all citizens of earth without any discrimination. Mother nature treats us all with care providing everything that is essential for the existence of life on the planet making earth a home for billions. Among them Man is outstanding due to the unique features such as level of intelligence, ability of complex reasoning, use of complex language, introspection and many more. Among them a golden characteristic is the virtues and morals that we as humans follow. People are different from one another having their unique identity. They may differ based on color, gender, beliefs, wealth, social class etc. but unite under one magnificent criterion which is ‘Humanity’.

Every human being has the right to obtain opportunities to lead a successful life. The society is a collection of individuals which indirectly means it stands as one together! Therefore, through the window of social justice it is observed that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities. A rightful and equal distribution of wealth, opportunities and privileges is the fundamental definition of social justice. It is the responsibility of every member of the world to contribute towards endorsing and promoting the pattern of equality towards fellow members of the society.

Since the first proclamation by the General Assembly in 2007 of the United Nations The World Day of Social Justice is annually observed on the 20th of February to encourage people to look at how social justice affects poverty eradication. It also focuses on the goal of achieving full employment and support for social integration. The theme of the world day of social justice for the year 2022 is “Achieving Social Justice through Formal Employment”.

By enhancing social justice, poverty could be eradicated, providing a platform for everyone to grasp opportunities through paving the way to achieve their desired success in life, promoting sustainability, a foundation for a healthy life is created and many more optimistic impacts could be evidently highlighted.

Just like the dark sky of the night which frames the background for every star to shine and declare its flair equally, social justice constructs the framework and platform for opportunities to be accessible for every individual to prove their skills and abilities.
