Racial Equity & Social justice resources
This page was developed as a part of a larger effort to support school social worker leadership in addressing issues of racial equity and social justice. Our SSWAA model calls for school social workers to address education rights and advocacy as a critical component of the work that we do. School social workers are ethically called to address structural inequalities that impact a students’ educational trajectories and advocating for policy changes at all levels. School social workers play an important role in addressing issues of racial equity, inclusion, and social and economic justice in our schools. Particularly at a time when there is a national call for addressing racial inequalities and be actively anti-racist in our work and personal lives, we hope that these resources can support this work for school social workers nationally and internationally.
