When was World Social Justice Day Established?

The day was first established by the United Nations in 2007, with the goal of reminding the international community of its responsibility to promote social justice and to raise awareness of the importance of this issue. Social justice is the fair and just distribution of resources and opportunities, and it includes issues such as poverty, inequality, and discrimination.

Throughout history, people have fought for social justice in various ways. From the civil rights movement in the United States to the fight for workers’ rights, social justice has been at the forefront of many important social and political movements. Today, the fight for social justice continues, with people and organizations working to address issues such as poverty, inequality, and discrimination.
