In the Face of Hate and Violence
By Rachel L. West
Advocacy & Community Outreach Consultant
I’ve created a public Google Doc for us to share events that are taking place in response to the disturbing events in Charlottesville, VA. You can read my response on the #MacroSW blog.
Social justice is a defining component of social work. We are tasked with fighting oppression and giving a voice to those who are silenced by institutionalized discrimination. Over the past eight months #MacroSW has had many chats about the new challenges brought about by the current White House administration. Yesterday’s events in Charlottesville was a watershed moment.
Please share the link.
