Listen to Amelia Gibbon of the Friendly Center on Social Justice and Sustainability in Our Communities: Can Non-profits Help Lead the Way? [Podcast]
The term Social Justice has been tossed around quite a bit lately due to some of the headlines on T.V and in the press, but if you look at the origins of Social Justice, it stems from the idea of equality in all facets of society, business or economic opportunities. For that reason, many proponents of social justice support the idea of change agents in the community and in the public sector specifically. On today's show we have a real life change agent, Ms. Amelia Gibbon who will be joining us to share her perspective on creating change in society as it relates to leading a non-profit organization. Amelia Gibbon is the Executive Director of The Friendly Center in Toledo Ohio.
