NASW North Carolina Chapter
Racism is America's defining social problem. By not acknowledging and addressing this, social workers are ignoring their ethical obligation. We cannot sit idly by as acts of racism, hatred, violence, and murder are repeatedly targeted toward black and brown people. Silence is not an option, and expressions of outrage and dismay are not enough.
Chapter urges members to take action to address racism in the Lone Star State and beyond.
Police must root out the many police officers who continue to view Black lives as being less than that of other Americans.
Chapter urges all Americans come together to fight racism, will be consulting with members on next action steps.
NASW-GA offers condolences to the family and friends of Ahmaud Arbery and urges social workers to take strong but peaceful action.
