As social workers committed to justice and enhancing human well-being, we cannot sit idly by as acts of racism, hatred, violence, and murder are repeatedly targeted toward Black and Brown people in our society. Silence is not an option and expressions of outrage and dismay are not enough. At NASW-MA, we are committed to advocating for policies and legislation that advance racial justice. We are committed to creating educational opportunities for social workers related to race and racism. We are committed to learning, growing, and leaning in, even when it is hard or uncomfortable, with strategic guidance from and in partnership with our Racial Justice Council.
