History Lost, Stolen or Strayed: The Footsteps of NASW

Mildred “Mit” Joyner, DPS, MSW, LCSW

NASW President

Today as our nation faces two pandemics and NASW re-affirms its commitment to anti-racism, the social work profession must examine its steps toward justice. What action is our professional association prepared to take to build a “Beloved Community”? The social work community will continue to bend the arc of justice towards equity for all, no matter how arduous the journey.


COVID 19 and the Role of Social Workers

Jonathan White, Ph.D., LCSW-C, CPH

Commander, US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps

Director of Recovery, HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response

COVID 19 has brought about numerous challenges to our healthcare, social services, and schools. How can social workers best support recovery and resilience in our communities affected by this pandemic?


The Coming Election - Voting is Social Work

Kathryn M. Audette, MSW

Director, Government Affairs

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc.

Social workers know the importance of voting - voting is social work. How do we best empower our clients and communities to exercise this right and responsibility? How do we engage in get out the vote activities during this time of social distancing? Moving forward, what can social workers do after the elections to contribute to the legislative process and expand voting rights and access?
