 WMU School of social work justice DIALOGUE

View the recording of the School of Social Work's discussion to address racism and white supremacy and the impacts it has on social policies and practice, and on social work practice at the micro and macro level.  This was lead by Dr. Don Cooney on June 4, 2020 with over 75 members of our School of Social Work community in attendance. This is just the beginning to a long-term conversation on how the school can respond to this moment in history and fulfill our mission of social, economic and environmental justice for all.
