World Day of Social Justice is today!

The first World Day of Social Justice, proclaimed by the UN General Assembly is today. Member States are invited to devote this special day to the promotion of national activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the World Summit for Social Development.

The World Day of Social Justice will contribute to the efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.

Participating governments have made a commitment to the creation of a framework for action to promote social justice at national, regional and international levels. They recognize that economic growth should promote equity and social justice and that “a society for all” must be based on social justice and respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms.
