The March and June issues of the IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication published reviews of Engineering Justice (Leydens & Lucena, 2018) and Technical Communication After the Social Justice Turn (Walton, Moore, & Jones, 2019). The past few weeks have brought the issue of social justice into even greater prominence. People in the US and throughout the world are beginning to realize the urgency of enacting social justice in our communities and workplaces. So what are the ways that professional communicators are doing (and can do) this critical work?

To address this question, the Transactions requests proposals for guest editorship of a special issue on Enacting Social Justice in Professional Communication for the March 2022 issue. Potential guest editors are encouraged to define the specific scope of the special issue however they choose, so long as the proposed topics center on enacting social justice in professional communication and not solely presenting theoretical discussions about social justice or its significance.
