Disparities and strategies to achieve social justice

Identify one of the special populations addressed in this course and identify key structural inequalities experienced by that population. More data is available on some populations, such as African Americans, and less on other groups, such as transgendered persons. The points assigned for this paper will take into account the data availability differences and give credit based on available data. Data from common sources to describe the population are expected to be used. Some examples are data from the “American Human Development Project” (www.humandevelopmentproject.org/louisiana) or from other local sources such as the Greater New Orleans Community Data Center (www.gnocdc.org) and the Kids Count Data Book.

  1. Data profile on the group chosen includes basic social structural data (poverty, income, housing, education, health, mental health, social justice features, etc.) (8points)
  2. Data profile compares and contrasts data on the population compared with other groups (8 points)
