Diamondback: UMD’s first Social Justice Day tackles immigration, inequality and other issues
University of Maryland's student newspaper reported on the inaugural Social Justice Day held Tuesday, April 18. The daylong event focused on themes of immigration, economic inequality, environmental justice, creating healthy communities and the media. "[These] are the crying social issues of the day," said university President Wallace Loh in the article. "Here we are applying our learning, our teaching and our research to address those issues from a particular perspective, the perspective of justice. We mean procedural justice, fairness, equality and substantive justice — human dignity, diversity and the values that define this county."
