Complete a paper that describes in detail a significant social justice issue that was/has been central to your client population, the resistance and social justice effort or movement that this created, advocacy efforts that took place, and policy creation or reform that was generated as a result of the movement/effort. For example, if you work with mothers in recovery from addiction, the social justice issue might have been: limited access to recovery options for mothers. If this is the case, there were likely some social justice/advocacy/policy efforts that took place to allow mothers to have access to additional resources and options where they could recover from addiction while caring for their children.
