Science & Social Justice: act

Science often gets framed as outside the discourse on social justice. After all, it is 'objective' research. What does biology, chemistry and computer science have to do with issues like gender equity, racism, homophobia, and wealth disparity? There are scientists of conscience working to answer these questions and to incorporate their findings into research approaches and pedagogy. This page is a collaboration between the ACSJL and Harvard University's DIVISION OF MEDICAL SCIENCES OF HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL.
