Social Justice and Unjust Systems: Strategies to Advance Structural Change
As forensic social workers, we are uniquely positioned to advance structural change for sustained social justice, by:
· Holistically understanding clients’ intersectionality in order to provide more inclusive and equitable services.
· Articulating justice/equity as a stated goal and including clients and stakeholders in identifying the root causes and developing solutions.
· Training administrators and staff to achieve social justice and equity.
· Disaggregating data and reporting outcomes with context.
· Considering intended and unintended impacts of programming, practices, and policies such that burdens and benefits are experienced equitably.
· Developing theories of structural/systems change to avoid only project-based results and instead support longer-term transformation and justice.
We invite you to partner with NOFSW to better understand systems and to gain the knowledge, skills, and strategies to advance structural change at all levels of practice. Join us in New Orleans for our 38th annual conference to become an advocate and architect of forensic social work and justice!
