Racism & white supremacy structure every belief, every interaction, and every choice we make - every day - both as social workers and as human beings. In this interactive workshop, geared particularly for white social workers (though all are welcome), we will explore the clinical and ethical ramifications of living in a white supremacist culture; what it means to be an effective ally to people of color; and how to engage in advocacy and activism to further racial justice. As social workers, we are ethically bound to confront racism and white supremacy. There will be skill-building opportunities to help participants better engage in genuine and useful dialogue about race, racism, and white supremacy.
