Students, faculty, and community social workers attend a previous conference

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

  1. Explore the impact of social policies and social services on racial inequities, including the unintended consequences of these policies and services.
  2. Support social workers working toward an increasingly equitable and racially just society.
  3. Celebrate the profound social justice actions of our social work community.

For questions, please contact Jenny Braunginn (jrbraung@wisc.edu) or Laura Dresser (ldresser@cows.org).

Continuing education (CEU/CEH) credits will be offered for the conference on Feb. 5th and 12th by the Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work 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. Each session offered will provide 1.5 CEH (0.15 CEU) for a total of 6 CEH/0.6 CEU for full conference attendance. For more information, contact Amy Basel (basel2@wisc.edu).
