Association of Students for Social Justice (ASSJ) is a community of students focused on increasing awareness and knowledge of social injustices, advocating for systematic changes at Palo Alto University, and addressing the needs of students from marginalized communities.


 We are focused on facilitating student-led social action groups to increase awareness of the reality of marginalized identities; encouraging discussions related to social justice issues, systemic oppression, advocacy, and current events; and promoting allyship among faculty, staff, and students.
