NASW chooses not to support the Senate confirmation of Betsy DeVos to become U.S. Secretary of Education.
It was NASW’s position that because the father was never treated by Ms. McKeever, the social worker owed no legal duty to him. Imposing third party liability on social workers who are mandated reporters of suspected child abuse would jeopardize effective treatment and have serious and detrimental consequences in preventing child maltreatment.
NASW withholds its support of the confirmation of Dr. Ben Carson to be the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) because he has no discernible qualifications to manage an agency of such magnitude and complexity.
NASW opposes the Senate confirmation of Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to become Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over concerns he will erode health care protections for millions of Americans and support efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
NASW opposes the confirmation of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next U.S. Attorney General over deep concerns that during his tenure the United States could lose ground on important advances made during the past 50 years in civil and human rights.
NASW congratulates Donald J. Trump on his election to become the 45th president of the United States. The Association is deeply concerned by statements Mr. Trump has made regarding women, people of color and immigrants. At the same time, we acknowledge we must work with the new administration to address pressing issues of the day, including justice reforms, racial and gender inequality, access to health care for all, and helping more Americans achieve economic self-sufficiency and stability.
The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is holding its first Virtual Grad Fair on November 9 from noon to 4 p.m. EST that will connect prospective social work graduate students with admissions recruiters from college and university social work graduate programs.
In what seems to be an unending national dilemma, the country is again grappling with the shooting deaths of black men during encounters with law enforcement officers. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) recognizes and embraces the crucial, necessary, and dangerous role that law enforcement officers play in maintaining public safety for all segments of our society. The association also recognizes that our society cannot ignore compelling evidence that men of color, especially black men, are more likely to be killed during a use of force encounter with police than other racial or ethnic groups.
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.
NASW is partnering with Social Work Helper Magazine and the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW) on a nationwide Rock the Vote registration drive.
