Most students think about or experience social justice issues.
Most kids do not accept social justice issues as the status quo.
Kids look up to adults to help them decide what to do
"We, as citizens, agree to live by certain guidelines we call a covenant."
If anyone violates the covenant, "then we attempt to restore social justice through concerted action"
Kids can not do this alone, they need adult guidance.
