World Social Justice Day
On 20 February, World Social Justice Day is celebrated. Was that date set by the United Nations? UN, on November 26, 2007, through resolution 62/10 and aims to reflect on the need for social justice in all countries of the world.
The main goals for the realization of Social Justice are: elimination of poverty, access to decent employment, elimination of all types of discrimination and also improve the well-being of the population.
Democracy and Social Justice
The lack of social justice affects many countries in the world and more severely those facing undemocratic government regimes where efforts have been intensified to improve the living conditions of the population.
However, in countries such as Brazil, which have a consolidated democracy, there are also many social problems, such as poverty, and therefore they also need efforts to eliminate inequalities and promote human beings.
Basic Education for Social Justice
The UN says that, in order for social policies to be followed in full, one of the fundamental pillars is the joint work of social justice and education, since only through access to education can it be that the human being develops as a citizen , Bringing conditions to access a job, eliminating all prejudices and discrimination and promoting opportunities for people living, who since childhood have been able to form as a full adult.
Human Rights and Social Justice
Another fundamental factor for the realization of Social Justice is the promotion of human rights, since these, when respected, ensure that the population has a dignified life and access to rights and freedoms that allowed their inclusion in society.
From the point of view of ethics and social justice, respect for human rights must be one of the bases of any society, because only from it can one guarantee life with dignity and the elimination of abuses and, consequently, inequality.
