Social Justice Challenge

I am very excited for the Social Justice Challenge, starting in January. This challenge highlights a different issue each month and the aim is to learn more about these issues and effect change locally and globally.
I find that when I read a novel or non-fiction piece that centers on a topic related to this challenge, I feel that I need to do something to help solve the problem but am at a loss as to what that something is. I hope that this challenge will give me the motivation I need to speak out for those causes I believe in - as well as to learn more about others - and to advocate for the changes that are so desperately needed.

  2. Hi Sue - what an interesting challenge! I don't know if I can handle the weight of another challenge, but...

    And reading back on your posts - welcome to the world of book bloggers!


  3. Thanks Aimee -- I'm still learning my way around the blogosphere but I'm having fun so far....

  4. I really like the idea of that challenge too! I am trying to not over commit in the new year (I have a lot going on right now) but I think I'm going to follow it and see if there is something I can do along with it.

  5. Rebecca, what I like about this challenge is that you can vary the participation level month to month, so if you have other obligations in a month you don't have to be as active; and in another month if you have more time (or feel strongly about the issue) you can participate more.


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
