Here is a brief recap of the Social Justice Committee’s activity in the last semester and our ambitious plan for the second semester.
In the first semester, we focused on ‘abortion,’ a burning topic over the summer due to the Roe vs Wade case in the States. We focused on raising awareness about this issue in a global context by researching current situations surrounding abortion all over the world, including Japan, Africa, South America, and of course, the U.S. We further extended our research by investigating the abortion situations from legal, social, and economic perspectives.
Here is the presentation slides we used for the November Social Justice Assembly that we hosted.
Stepping into the next semester, our committee will focus on the topic of… (drum rolls please)... ANIMAL TESTING! As a topic surrounded by many controversies because of the need for testing in science, we will research the many perspectives of this sustain-worthy topic. Details of our activities will be shared later, but currently we are planning to host some fundraising and collaborations with businesses.
Moreover, from the next volume of HS explorer, our committee will regularly post articles related to social justice issues as a separate section in the explorer. Please keep an eye out for our articles!
