The Alliance of Anti-Racist Social Work Practitioner

Statement of Purpose:

The Alliance of Anti-Racist Social Work Practitioners (the Alliance) is a new organization at the University of Maryland School of Social Work dedicated to racial justice.  Within the context of activism and social justice, our group seeks to examine and redefine the work of social workers in a racialized United States. As there is no clear definition of anti-racist social worker, we intend to pursue a broad set of activities and questions that challenge the implicit and explicit racism buttressing the deep inequities in contemporary America.

Advisors: Dr. Wendy Shaia and Ms. Rebecca Davis
