MY x Change Ep 4: World Social Justice Day
22 February 2021 - Ralph Mpofu

A Call for Social Justice in the Digital Economy

Every year on 20 February, the world observes the World Day of Social Justice. This day is important because it brings together citizens around the world to raise a voice against social injustice. For many, this day is not only about awareness, but an opportunity to bring together diverse communities to make a socially intergrated society.

Locally, our young student leaders had the perfect platform to bring together key members of our communities to discuss and share on what social justice means for them.

Joining us for Episode 4 to talk and share their experience on Social Justice were 3 special guest speakers.

Session 3: Social Justice & Rural Communities: Why Discriminate?
