The Movement for Change and Social Justice at a Glance

The Movement for Change and Social Justice knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2016, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch The movement for change and social justice.
