Our Mission

Our ultimate goal is to create a just and peaceful world. To this end, we work on the interconnected issues of economic and racial justice, peace, and human rights through education, training, non-violent activism, and community organizing. We are a non-partisan, service-oriented group of grassroots activists and advocates. Our members include both individuals and organizations that have signed a commitment statement. Our intention is to support these affiliated organizations in their work, facilitate robust communication networks, and find ways to collaborate in building a more equitable Faulkner County.

What Is Social Justice?

We define “social justice” as the belief that we each have inherent rights as human beings, and inequality is destructive to our goals as a democratic society. Social justice work is simply an effort to bring about dignity and equal treatment for all people—regardless of their race, gender, age, class, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental ability, citizenship status, or level of education. A social justice advocate will work to combat biases and prejudices that exist in society, support and encourage people in their communities who lack a voice, and protest laws and regulations that deny any group access to fair resources and equal opportunity. Social justice requires action.

People of all political affiliations should strive to eliminate injustice; inequality, prejudice, and bias are human problems requiring human solutions. Everyone must work together to build a healthier, more equitable, society for future generations.
