Summary
• Acknowledging and working with diversity is central
to the building of a fairer society
• Differential access to power is constructed through
privilege and marginality and can be challenged
• Critically understanding and acting to confront the
forces which shape unjust social practices and
relations is central to the implementation of the
SACSA Framework.
