What Our Members Say

Marlese Durr, 2014-2015 SSSP president

"I became a member of SSSP as an Assistant Professor in the late 90s and immediately cherished the nurturing, civic, and progressive space that the society offered me as a young professional. Fast forward fifteen years later, I continue to 'keep that same ole feeling' as I interact with scholars and practitioners focused on investigating the roots of social problems that remain a part of our society.  I invite you to join the SSSP and become a part of our ever expanding society.”

Marlese Durr, SSSP President 2014-2015

In Pursuit of Social Justice

2014 Proposed Resolutions

SSSP resolutions constitute an important opportunity for our scholar-activist membership to publicly declare their sentiments, thereby creating a channel for greater visibility and more direct influence upon a variety of “publics,” i.e., fellow activists, scholars, students, decision-makers, social action groups, voters, and others.
