In this paper, we explore the role that theories of Social Justice from the Engineering Education literature may play in the field of AI-HRI, explore the extent to which the recommendations made by such theories are or are not already being followed in our community, and envision a future in which our research community takes guidance from these theories. In particular, we explore the recent past and envisioned futures of AI-HRI through the lens of the Engineering for Social Justice (E4SJ) framework due to its emphasis on contextual listening and enhancement of human capabilities.
