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
NASW is committed to ending racism through public education, social justice advocacy and professional training. View the NASW page.
