SOCIAL WORK AND RACIAL INJUSTICE

NASW and Chapters Respond

With the killing of Ahmaud Arbery in February and the death of George Floyd in May at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, anger and frustration exploded in protests and riots in the streets.  Social workers have long been advocates of minorities and social justice.  But now, along with COVID-19, racism rose to the top of 2020 concerns.  It became vital for social workers to put the spotlight again on racism and racial injustice.  Here are a few responses from the NASW community:
