Social Justice

The Social Justice Theme Community is a space that celebrates and affirms the diverse backgrounds of all its members, as well as all students at University of Arizona. Whether ability, body size/appearance, gender identity and expression, nationality, political affiliation, sexual orientation, social class, race, religion/spirituality, or other identities, students are encouraged to bring their whole selves to the Social Justice Theme Community. The community provides a safe space for students to discuss their differences and pluralistic identities without fear of slurs, attacks or discrimination. The community also offers the option of gender-inclusive roommate pairings, for those interested.
