What's New with sswaa
As members of the SSWAA Board of Directors, we acknowledge the urgency and fluid nature of these times, with the increasing impacts of the COVID-19 virus being felt all around the country and the world.
As a profession guided by our ethical values of honoring the dignity and worth of every person and the need to challenge social injustices, the School Social Work Association of America is outraged by the traumatic and recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd as well as the threat to Christan Cooper’s life.
