Justice is the fair and equitable treatment of all persons within and between communities.  This includes equal rights and accountability in applying the rule of law, regardless of identity, background, or circumstances.  Justice enables each individual to exercise full participation in society because there is a more equitable distribution of power, resources, opportunities, and responsibilities.  A just society is one where all individuals feel safe and secure and are able to realize their full potential.  Justice is also a process where individuals feel a sense of social responsibility to work together in an inclusive way to challenge the root causes of oppression, privilege, and injustice and to create change.  In a just society, individuals and institutions have an obligation to ensure that all are being treated fairly and equitably.
