Ethnicity & Race

NASW is committed to social justice for all. Discrimination and prejudice directed against any group are damaging to the social, emotional, and economic well-being of the affected group and of society as a whole. 

NASW has a strong affirmative action program that applies to national and chapter leadership and staff. It supports three national committees on equity issues: the National Committee on Women's Issues, National Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity, and the National Committee on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Issues.
