Social Justice Award.

In 1990, The Social Justice award was established by the then Union President, Tim Sheehy and the Jesuit order Provincial. The objective was to recognise a person, who had contributed in an exceptional way to the pursuit of social justice within the global community. In line with the Jesuit ethos, an award dedicated to someone who truly is 'a man for others'. The first recipient of the award, was The Rev. Sam Burch, a Methodist Minister working with the communities of Belfasts' Falls road and Shankill road. Reverend Burch dedicated his time to the pursuit of peace between the Nationalist and Unionist communities of Northern Ireland.

Since then, the Social Justice award has been presented every year, to someone that the Union President and the Committee deem worthy of this award, the Union’s highest Honour.
