Maynooth Social Justice Week in Maynooth University is a collaboration between students, staff and other agencies to highlight global and national injustices and inequalities. The events of the week aim to promote a collective analysis of these issues and to stimulate solidarity and a socially-just response in our community and beyond.
This year, in the midst of a global pandemic which has both highlighted and amplified inequalities locally and globally, celebrating social justice week together as a community has an even greater importance. The Committee has specifically chosen the theme ‘Re-affirming Social Justice during a Global Crisis’ to emphasise the importance of a social justice lens as we collectively analyse the impact of the crisis, as well as build our response individually, as a community and as a society. We are our actions and what we do now creates our collective future.
