Persons with disabilities are among minority groups who frequently experience marginalization and disenfranchisement. As a paradigm, social justice attempts to address marginalization through equitable redistribution of resources, policy and legislative revisions, and personal empowerment. The limited response of rehabilitation counseling to relational issues of social justice sets the stage for disciplinary growth on the topic. The purpose of this article is to discuss the interplay between social justice and rehabilitation counseling and to explore how we can infuse the tenets of social justice into our discipline through refinements in rehabilitation curricula.
