Contributions to the Revolutionize Social Work Fund powers the work of the RSW Leadership Team. These funds will be used to pay for conference presentation admissions, supports and services integral to the mission, and compensate the BIPOC social workers leading this initiative. Currently, these initiatives are fully volunteer including staff time. We are working towards making this initiative a fully funding pillar of the NYS Chapter.
What is Revolutionize Social Work?
Revolutionize Social Work (RSW) is a movement of social workers from around the world committed to naming and dismantling racism and white supremacy that is perpetrated and perpetuated by social work.
Who can be a part of Revolutionize Social Work?
Any person committed to creating a most racially just society and social work profession. There is no membership necessary. Our Town Halls and Action Groups are led by BIPOC social workers only. It is imperative that our anti-racist work is led by the community that has been oppressed and marginalized by white supremacy and racism. Social workers with white privilege are invited to practice allyship through listening and learning in our town halls, contributing to our Action Groups, and spreading the word about this initiative.
Who leads Revolutionize Social Work?
The NASW-NYS Revolutionize Leadership Team is leading the journey to transform social work by identifying the ways in which racism is perpetuated in our profession to hold these systems of power accountable.
