Counselors for Social Justice

Counselors for Social Justice

Counselors for Social Justice (CSJ) is an association of counselors, counseling professionals, graduate students, school and community leaders and other professionals who seek a fair distribution of common resources to all people, equitable access to power, knowledge, resources and services, equitable ability to participate and an end to oppression and injustice affecting clients, students, counselors, families, communities, schools, workplaces, governments, and other social and institutional systems. The goal in this instance is a principle of social adjustment where the self-interest of any individual or group, when allowed to function on its own, produces results that afford the best possible outcomes for the community as a whole.

CSJ has a number of chapters throughout the United States and is a division of the American Counseling Association.
