Equality vs. Equity vs. Social Justice

Like so many Americans, I want to understand the tensions of race in our country.  To do so, I must reposition myself from defending my position and views to choosing to learn and listen to the perspectives and feelings of another.  One aspect that I find helpful is understanding the difference between “equity” and “equality”.  The following article (sent to me by our school superintendent, Dr. Chen) I find insightful. It is an oversimplification but it gets to the heart of equality vs. equity vs. social justice.  

Here is a link to an artist who tries to reflect on these difficult concepts and depicts them symbolically.
