Rethinking Meaning of ‘Justice’ for Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Friday 16th of August 2019 | North America, United States

What does “justice” look like for young people experiencing homelessness in the United States? As one of the wealthiest nations in the world, it is troubling to consider the numerous ways that we, as a society, fail youth and young adults in securing one of the most basic needs: shelter. To live in a world grounded in compassion, empathy and equity, we must consider how young people enduring housing insecurity, or homelessness, navigate these structural failures. Once we understand the complex injustices of youth’s experiences, we can better move forward in truly improving the lives of young people living at the margins of society.
