Social Justice Starts within Ourselves

When social work is integrated into the policy making is a process we must understand that the outcome of policy will always have negative consequences. The process of Social Justice starts with ourselves,

“through a self-reflective process that examines the contradictions between our espoused values and our lived experience. We must believe that all people, both from dominant and targeted groups, have a critical role in dismantling oppression and generating a vision for a socially just future. For if only people from oppressed groups take on this responsibility, there is little hope that we will ever achieve our vision (Spencer, 2014).
