Civil Rights

Protecting Equal Rights-Promoting Social Justice

NASW supports full civil rights for all people. NASW will continue to support strong federal policies, including affirmative action, aimed at addressing discrimination based on race and gender. In addition, NASW will urge Congress to extend the promise of equal opportunity to all citizens, including gay men, lesbians, bisexual, and transgender persons through the passage of such measures as the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and the Hate Crimes Prevention Act. NASW opposes public policies that alienate Americans by race, ethnicity, gender, age, physical or mental abilities, sexual orientation, or religious belief.
