Mission Statement/Purpose

The purpose of AOWG is to advance social justice principles and an anti-oppression framework within the School of Social Work by making policy recommendations, promoting an equitable school and work environment for students and staff, and ensuring that the curriculum critically engages and challenges all students. We support movements to abolish policing, abolish the carceral system, and decolonize therapy and education.
