NASW has set five social justice priorities to address over the next year — voting rights, criminal justice reforms, juvenile justice, immigration reform and economic justice and equity.

Within this set of social justice priorities are four sub-priorities – health and behavioral health equity, racial and population-based discrimination, matters involving courts such as U.S. Supreme Court and federal judge nominations and environmental justice.

Social Justice Issue Briefs provide an overview of these topics in a focused, researched and concise package.
