Cincinnati, OH –News Direct– The Institute for Social Justice

The Institute for Social Justice (TISJ) at Union Institute & University recently launched OneJustWorld.org, an online community that seeks to mobilize individual and group action for measurable impact. Today, TISJ announces a Call for Nominations for OneJustWorld awards. The winners will be announced in February on the occasion of the World Day of Social Justice.

This will be the first year of these awards, which will recognize and honor those who have demonstrated leadership and commitment to putting social justice into action in the areas of education, economics, environment, health , safety and social impact. Anyone can submit a nomination to recognize individuals and organizations who have made a measurable and significant contribution. Applications can be made online here.

“There are amazing people doing amazing work,” said Betsy Martin, Executive Director of TISJ. “The OneJustWorld Awards aim to honor and recognize the courage and perseverance of changemakers in multiple areas of society. In order to achieve our goal of a fairer world, actions must be taken in every community; including workplaces, organizations and neighborhoods. In addition to the awards, OneJustWorld helps facilitate the pursuit of social justice through community action by creating regional community action councils across the country to identify and bring together as many current and future leaders and changemakers as possible. These awards and action tips are ways TISJ can support change leaders, honor them, and celebrate voices that make an impact. »

While much of the interaction with OneJustWorld.org happens online, reaching communities in person is just as important. Community Action Councils (CAs) are organized in four regions: South, West, Northwest, and Midwest/East. The first four meeting cities will be selected as the starting point for their region and anyone interested in becoming a member of the Action Council outside of the designated city, but within the region, will also be invited to participate in the initial meeting. from the city. Meetings will be offered both in person, at Union Institute & University centers and on Zoom. The first meeting will be Wednesday, January 25, 2023 in Cincinnati Ohio for the Midwest and East regions. Hollywood Florida will launch the South Region. Los Angeles, California will host the southwest and Sacramento, California, the northwest. These meeting dates are indicated on the website.
