Statement from GWSCSW on Americans Fighting for Justice

Greater Washington Society For Clinical Social Work strongly supports the advocacy being demonstrated by Americans fighting for justice for the African American community. As clinical social workers, it is part of our responsibility to protect vulnerable populations, work for social justice, and guide clients in communicating and experiencing their emotions and beliefs in an effective manner. 

We stand with the African American community in the belief that a systemic change is required to address the racism that is needlessly terrorizing and killing our fellow citizens. 

Our social work values teach us to honor the inherent worth and dignity of every human being as well as work for social change. Therefore, the Society encourages its members to be involved in legislation, advocacy, education, activism and protest. As clinical social workers, we strive to do our part in engaging in anti-racism work and in supporting our clients while they navigate a racist society and implement change. 

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."


Membership is the best way to network with a region-wide community of social workers who share the same values and expertise in a wide range of practice areas.
