RJSJ - Background
Racial Justice is Social Justice (RJSJ) is a group of Fairfield University facutly, staff and students committed to leading change on our campus in order to create a more diverse and inclusive community. RJSJ is also committed to promoting ongoing dialogue on racial justice and to building our capacity to meaningfully engage in this critical dialogue at Fairfield University.
RJSJ’s formation was inspired by the activism and awareness raising work of a small group of Fairfield University students in response to the tragedies in Ferguson, Staten Island, and Cleveland. Their activism raised consciousness about racial injustice on our own campus of Fairfield University. RJSJ met regularly from December 2014- April 2015 and generated several recommendations related to racial justice at Fairfield.
