Is it Social Justice or Judgement?

The semantics of the word justice.  Who would have thought that the word justice would have negative connotations…I was in a workshop when one of the participants had a negetive reaction to the word justice. She felt like it was passing judgement.

Especially since very often in working on green and sustainability related topics we are trying to convince people to be more just, are we potentially allienating them because of this word choice?

If she, who was open and interested enough in sustainability to attend a program to talk about this topic, I wonder how others are potentially reacting to the feeling of being judged.
