A talented team of dedicated individuals and a nationally prominent Advisory Board have come together to create a non-profit organization called THE JUSTICE PROJECT. The mission of THE JUSTICE PROJECT is to unite ideas, individuals, and movements that are working to champion justice in four areas: educational, environmental, social, and economic justice.
Leading this non-profit organization is Founder and Executive Director Noah benShea. One of North America’s most respected poet-philosophers, Noah benShea is an internationally best-selling author of 23 books translated into 18 languages. He has been the subject of a National PBS Special, addressed the Library of Congress, and been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. “My mission statement is to be a source of strength to others. THE JUSTICE PROJECT is a public affirmation and action arm of that personal commitment. I am indebted to Sara Miller McCune who invited me to do this good work and envisioned the nobility of this effort,” Noah stated.
Funding for THE JUSTICE PROJECT has graciously been provided by Sara Miller McCune and SAGE, a leading independent academic and professional publisher. Sara is the Founder of SAGE and is currently the Executive Chair of SAGE’s Board of Directors. Sara is also president of the McCune Foundation, a member of the Board of Directors at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
To promote student involvement in educational, environmental, social, and economic justice, THE JUSTICE PROJECT has launched a nationwide writing competition aimed at students, but open to the general public. The parameters for the writing competition are purposely vague, allowing contestants to write on any issue related to one, some, or all of the four arenas of justice. The content of the essays may range from a theoretical digression on the definition of justice to a utilitarian solution that could remedy an environmental, educational, economic, or social injustice. The competition aims to provide a public platform for young activists, aspiring writers, and emerging scholars to discuss important issues related to justice. The three winners of the competition will each receive a cash prize and the first-place winner will be awarded $750 and a feature on THE JUSTICE PROJECT website. To find out more information about the writing competition or to enter, visit THE JUSTICE PROJECT’s website or Facebook Page.
