- Social justice offenses happen every day and close at hand.
- They include everything from jokes told about particular kinds of people, disrespectful/hurtful treatment, and stereotyping people of particular genders, backgrounds, and skin colors.
- When we are present and say nothing (act as bystanders) we support these offenses.
- When we speak up to disagree, we become upstanders, supporters of social justice.
- This takes courage because it breaks the “solidarity rule” that the one who makes these offenses relies upon.
- Upstanders keep solidarity with those who are the victims of social injustice, not with those who commit injustices.
