Janaya Khan at the 2019 conference

The conference challenges social workers to engage in racial and social justice action. The goals are to:

Explore the impact of social policies and social services on racial inequities, including the unintended consequences of these policies and services.

Support social workers working toward an increasingly equitable and racially just society.

Celebrate the profound social justice actions of our social work community.

For questions, please email: confrontinginjustice@socwork.wisc.edu.

Continuing education (CEU/CEH) credits will be offered at NO COST. If you would like to receive continuing education credits for attendance and participation in the conference you will be instructed to indicate this on the registration form.

​You will also need to sign into the plenary sessions on YouTube (we will have a virtual sign-in sheet) and the other presentations on Zoom (which will keep a record of time attended).

Each session offered will provide 1.5 CEH (0.15 CEU) for a total of 6 CEH/0.6 CEU for full conference attendance.  Certificates will be sent to those who attend.

The UW-Madison Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work is approved to offer continuing education through the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services; Social Worker Continuing Education section. Please note this does not imply automatic acceptance by all state boards, and we are not seeking approval from other state licensing bodies. There are various state requirements. Please check with your specific board to determine whether this specific program will be accepted for continuing education purposes.
