MISSION: The Social Justice Committee of Montreal is an independent Canadian organization working in international solidarity. Conscious that many of the world's impoverished peoples are victims of social injustice, and inspired by the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, its mission is to engage Canadians in working for a more socially just world.As an independent human rights organization, the SJC provides education and advocacy about global poverty and inequality. We use public education to help individuals and organizations become actively engaged in efforts to create a more just global society. We seek to eliminate poverty and human rights violations through informed popular participation in defense of economic, social and cultural rights.
Working in solidarity, with the goal of social justice
, the SJC strives to support the struggle for fairness, cooperation, and the vision of a viable and sustainable world.
