Welcome to our 2020 virtual Social Justice Fair! The Grade 12 students in Theology IV and Liberty, Justice & Security classes have completed their yearlong capstone project focused on a specific social justice issue. Their task was to research an issue of interest and apply their critical thinking skills to address its historical roots and the people whom it impacts. Using the lens of Catholic Social Justice Teaching, they determine a concrete solution and/or act of advocacy to make a difference in the world today.
Each project demonstrates the fruits of a four year Fontbonne education as one that prepares our graduates to be critical thinkers and effective communicators. In addition to the 20-page paper they have written, the Social Justice Fair provides students with a platform to present what they have learned to the Fontbonne community and invited guests.
The Social Justice Fair is traditionally held on campus. For the first time, this special event is taking place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for joining us and for celebrating the hard work and passion of our students. We invite you to visit this webpage daily as new student projects will be released throughout the week.
