Yes, thank you Steven! Love the concept of being a “happy warrior” because there will always be more work to do!
Christina Connery

I agree about the happy warrior line steven...thank you for sharing that! I immediately thought about how frustrated and negative I get in our field often, and being a happy warrior through all of the racial injustice is a nice theme to hold on to.

@Maria NASW-CA is beginning multiple initiatives to address some of this, and I certainly welcome anyone who is interested in joining! We are launching a social work policy consortium to build the movement around SW policy/advocacy work, we are looking at implementation of training initiatives to raise the capacity of social workers to serve in public office. And, we are working with national level critical race researches to bridge education to practice.
