During NASW-NYS’s monthly Revolutionize the Profession town halls social workers from across the world have connected to discuss racism in practice. These town halls have created a space for social workers to listen and engage with the experiences and concerns of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) social workers. The Revolution has highlighted the need for BIPOC social workers to have a safe space that promotes healing and community with the support of their peers. To this end, we are excited to announce our Revolution Peer Support Healing Group. This group will be only open to BIPOC social workers and will be a safe space to connect with peers and process the impact of racism. The Revolution Peer Support Healing Group will meet virtually, approximately one week after our monthly town halls. We invite you to join us on June 1st for our first group meeting which will include a self-care session led by Dr. Silas, LMSW.
How do you know if this group is for you? This is for social workers that experience racism because of the color of their skin on a regular basis. Revolutionize Healing is open to all social workers, no membership required. These events are free.
