What do we mean by a more just society?

For us, it starts with the individual, encompasses the family and then grows to include the Village.

There are many elements of our society that are good and we are thankful.

But there are many inequities that are not getting better.

The two primary inequities are poverty and discrimination.

Politics seem too divided keeping us from addressing the important issues that need to be addressed.

 

Adults don't seem to be able to make the changes necessary to address systemic issues.

They are too divided and biased.

We have to start with a  new generation of Youth.

We have to provide them with the knowledge and skills to debate the issues from a young age and develop solutions.
