Educating for a More Compassionate World

A society is yet to exist where all individuals and groups receive fair and equitable treatment. That truly defines the essence of social justice. Social justice is an ideal, but can it be realized? Considering the extent of social injustice in the world today, social justice might seem an impossible goal.

The Ben Marion Institute for Social Justice believes this goal is possible, and works tirelessly to effect it fully. Founded in 2006, the Institute merges thought with unique strategies to expand minds and hearts, resulting in the creation of communities of social justice and compassion, one heart at a time.

The Ben Marion Institute for Social Justice Inc. promotes respect, acceptance, understanding and equality in the community, encouraging inclusion across the lines of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national origin, gender, class or disability.

Mission statement

The Ben Marion Institute For Social Justice seeks to promote behaviors that encourage an inclusive society where individuals and groups embrace differences and value kindness, authenticity, empathy, compassion and fairness. The Institute is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit organization.
