The Social Justice League (SJL) is a student organization that is supported by the Department of Educational Psychology and recognized by CSUEB. The SJL's mission is to promote and advocate for diversity and equality for underserved populations. SJL are committed to fighting social injustices, promoting awareness about social issues, providing resources and support underprivileged communities. Each semester, SJL members sponsor various activities, on and off campus, to support the community (e.g., fundraising, school adoptions, mental health awareness) as a way to give back, empower, and educate those without voices.

While there are minor variations in the definition of what social justice is, there are commonalities among them all.
