Kelly Hyman addresses social justice as she shares more about the concept and the rise of so-called social justice movements.

Defined as justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, privileges, and opportunities within a society, social justice is a concept close to attorney Kelly Hyman’s heart. Here, the legal professional and advocate for women’s rights reveals more about her support for social justice both in the U.S. and globally. “A concept of fair and just relations between individuals and society, social justice is measured by the explicit and tacit terms for the distribution of wealth,” Denver-based Hyman explains, “as well as social privileges and opportunities.”

“The global justice movement, for example,” Kelly Hyman continues, “is a network of globalized social movements opposed to so-called corporate globalization, committed to promoting equal distribution of economic resources.” Such movements, she suggests, are generally heavily focused on health care, ecology and environment, and human rights education. “Often borrowing from the counterculture of the 1960s,” Hyman adds, wrapping up, “social justice movements may also focus on progressivism, climate justice, resource justice, and the right to housing and social security, as well as social work and social law, among countless other issues and concerns.”
