Social Justice Committee

The International Association of Forensic Nursing (IAFN) has identified social justice as one of the six pillars reflecting the core values of the organization. In early 2019, recognizing that the very nature of forensic nursing is grounded in social justice and that the IAFN is uniquely situated to promote social justice advocacy, IAFN developed and implemented an action plan to further solidify the objectives and strategies associated with the social justice pillar.

The committee seeks to:

  • Develop a social justice advocacy framework for forensic nurses
  • Review existing literature of social justice theory in nursing
  • Discuss organizational strengths, challenges, and gaps associated with IAFN’s evolution towards incorporation of a social justice advocacy framework/model.
