Hi, my name is Emily Martin and I am the creator of The Social Justice blog.

This blog was created in an attempt to humanize social justice issues. I began to realize a long time ago that people were more readily moved to action on social justice issues/causes when those issues were personally relevant to them or their loved ones. I think you’ll see a lot of stories on this blog that support this idea. People are moved to action out of love for others.

So, as someone who is passionate about way too many causes to keep up with, I decided to tell the stories of others in order to share the causes they are passionate about. This blog will spotlight various causes and organizations by telling the stories of the people who support them.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you’ll be moved by the stories you read on this site.
