Social Justice Connection is an independent organization providing education and advocacy about human rights, global poverty and inequality. Our vision is one of social justice, and of fairness and cooperation in a viable and sustainable world in which human rights are universally respected.
Educonnexion is our educational program, increasingly focused on human rights-based responsible global citizenship. Bringing together people who want to teach, learn and act as responsible global citizens, it seeks to empower people with the tools and skills to be informed, effective and inspired contributors to a connected and peaceful world.
SJC’s advocacy is focused on the need to respect international human rights standards in global finance.
For more than 25 years, The Upstream Journal has told the stories of communities facing poverty, oppression and marginalization with the goal of giving them, to the extent we could, a voice.
