The Social Workers’ Voice
The work of twenty first century social workers is complex, exciting, important and often gut wrenching. We find ourselves woven through people’s most intimate, important and at times shattering life events as we stand on the front lines of immigration, disaster relief, trauma response, business and commerce, and social justice policy advocacy. We not only have a professional obligation to change lives, but a moral obligation to make our society more responsive to the needs of those whose voices are easily and often intentionally silenced.
This blog is dedicated to spotlighting the work of our students, faculty, alumni and friends, and sharing with you the daily moments and struggles of the change and advocacy process.
