Hart House Social Justice Committee
We are a student group in the University of Toronto. Our goal is to raise awareness of social justice issues through proactive engagement of partnerships, networks and the student body as a whole, bringing about a well-established and long-lasting dialogue based around awareness, appreciation, and action into the lives of individuals and communities within and around the University of Toronto. Our value and contribution to student life as a committee is the breadth of our programming. We aim to introduce many different issues and opportunities for participation around social justice, with free, secular and accessible events, in an effort to engage the entire student body.
