Chapter Chats initially emerged out of a need to socially connect social workers while practicing physical distancing. They have grown into an accessible and easy way for social workers to share resources, network, and engage with one another across the State and Nation. These are conversations hosted by social workers, for social workers. Open to all who would like to attend, and any NASW member is invited to host a topic or conversation!

Engaging Community with the 4Rs: Respect, Responsibility, Relationship, and Reciprocity
with the HONOR Collective (Healing Our Nations, Offering Resiliency)
December 6, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. EST
The matriarchs of the HONOR Collective (Healing Our Nations, Offering Resilience) will be discussing using Kirkness & Barnhardt's 4Rs to engage tribal individuals, families and communities in conversations around the many aspects of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Relations (MMIR). The HONOR Collective is comprised of Indigenous women, Two Spirit, nonbinary and trans individuals who identify in the feminine. We respond to local tribes and urban Indian communities who ask for healing and support. HONOR Collective has a broad definition of MMIR which includes an intersection of topics including boarding school, foster care, domestic violence, sex trafficking, fraudulent sober living homes, sexual assault and substance abuse.
Knowing that NASW-NYS is not the best resource on all topics, and for all people, Revolutionize Social Work will be uplifting other organizations and associations that provide educational programming and peer support for individuals and communities across our state and Nation. We invite you to join us to learn from the matriarchs of the HONOR Collective on December 6 at 6pm.
