Racism is America’s Human Stain: Why Society Must Admit It, To Eradicate It

Description

Social Justice is a core social work value. It demands that social workers uphold their code of ethics and take deliberate actions, so justice and equity exist in all communities. Social workers must have the history of why brown and Black people are unsafe in their own country in order to dismantle oppressive policies and practices. Therefore without exception, the social work profession has a responsibility to take the necessary corrective action to bend the arc of justice towards equity for all.
