About this Journal
The Seattle Journal for Social Justice seeks to promote critical interdisciplinary discussions on urgent problems of social justice, including exploring the often-conflicting meanings of justice that arise in a diverse society. The SJSJ is managed and edited by Seattle University School of Law students in their second and third years of study. Publishing its inaugural issue in 2002, the SJSJ has compiled content representing a diverse range of social justice issues and perspectives: from questions on the impact of HIV/AIDS in the global community to discussions on the environmental degradation of Native American lands; from artwork drawn by Guantanamo detainees to reflections on spiritual exploration in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Among our most notable authors are Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Alice Walker, Howard Zinn, and Noam Chomsky.
