Social justice is defined in many different ways depending on the entity that is making the definition. The entity making the definition defines it from the way they perceive the world. For the purposes of this writing assignment, social justice will be defined as conforming to the natural law that all persons irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion etc., are to be treated equally and without prejudice.
