ABSTRACT:

Social justice activism and social movements involve various concepts of theoretical frameworks and critical analysis in the field of social justice. Theoretical implications and strategies such as collective action, collective identity, resource mobilization, collective behavior and subsets of master frames along with collective action frames within social movements will be emphasized along with nuanced baseline foundations of interconnected conflicts. Acts of violence and civil unrest will be examined with open-minded perspectives and underpinnings advancing peaceful and just human relationships and how it relates to social justice activism whether it be individually and/or collectively.
