Dual Pandemics Awaken Urgent Call to Advance Anti-Racism Education in Social Work: Pedagogical Illustrations
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work
COVID-19 (Disease) -- Social aspects, Anti-racism
In 2020 racial justice uprisings and COVID-19 and the push for institutional responses created pressure within social work to answer decades of calls for anti-racism action. CSWE responded and formed the Task Force for Anti-racism. As members of the Task Force, we call on CSWE to continue this anti-racism work. We describe a path forward to promote racial justice and dismantle systemic racism and white supremacy within social work education. We interrogate social work’s complicity in white supremacy, provide examples of social work anti-racism pedagogy, and call for centering BIPOC voices to move social work toward its anti-racism future.
