Social & Ecological Justice Little Library

Quick links to sections on this page:

As the Social & Ecological Justice Commission sat (at their respective computers), socializing before a meeting, each member started sharing what books they had recently read that moved them, or that they recommended others read as well.  Out of this discussion, the idea for a Little Library was formed.

The following books have been suggested by the SEJC (and friends) as good reads related to justice in its many forms.  We encourage you to purchase these books from the UCRD (if available), or from a local independent bookseller.  As time goes on, we anticipate more and more books will be added to this page.
