ACT JUST is a platform for dialogue, scholarship, and activism in environmental and social justice.

In a world that is increasingly complex, people are facing constant challenges  in their everyday lives involving secure meaningful opportunities for sustaining themselves, their families, and the environment.  At the same time, the wealth of opportunity for a very small percentage of the world's population has been expanding resulting in a tremendous rise in social inequality manifested as limitations on access to environmental goods (food, water, air, etc.) and disproportionate exposure to environmental risks.
