40+ million children have been displaced by conflict.
Global Justice Journal believes words are their most powerful weapon.
The Global Justice Journal is a social change platform for citizens of the world who have been subjected to systemic persecution based on race, ethnicity, national heritage, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
We approach social change in two unique ways.
Through intensive inquiry-based pedagogy, young truth seekers learn to dispel the myths that enslave their communities and articulate their vision for a better world. Rather than being told what to think, they learn how to think and, more importantly, how to change the way others think. This is accomplished through our Scholar Development Initiative as well as our innovative Peace Projects, which invite groups of young people in conflict affected communities to engage in a 15-week program that helps them identify the underlying causes of the conflict and cooperate in the development of sustainable solutions.
In addition, recognizing that most violent conflicts are a result of socioeconomic instability caused by resource scarcity, we assist adult residents of conflict affected communities to become more self reliant by equipping them with marketable vocational skills, entrepreneurial training, and business opportunities.
