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:

NASW joins the American Psychological Association and the American
Psychiatric Association in calling on our nation to declare systemic racism
a public health crisis.  "We all must do better and we will."  Read our op-ed
in the Orlando Sentinel.
NASW is committed to ending racism through public education, social justice advocacy and professional training.  View the NASW page.
