What Our Members Say

Heather Dalmage

"The SSSP was the first professional conference at which I presented. I remember, twenty-five years later, the paper I presented, the way others embraced my ideas, challenged me and supported my work. Over the years, I have found SSSP a place to try out new ideas, get professional support, and connect with sociologists concerned with social justice and social action. And, now, I find hope and inspiration in the newer – younger – scholars that are bringing their activism, experiences, and insights to the fore. The SSSP continues to be a place through which we can dream transformation while engaging in the work of scholar activism."

Heather M. Dalmage, SSSP President 2019-2020,

In Pursuit of Social Justice

SSSP 2019 Proposed Resolutions

Resolutions constitute an important opportunity for our scholar-activist membership to analyze and offer their opinions on contemporary social problems that we believe the Society should address as a social justice organization.  All SSSP members are invited to review the proposed 2019 resolutions and participate in the resolutions process.
