BC SOCIAL WORKERS CELEBRATE SOCIAL WORK WEEK
This year’s theme is Social work is essential and emphasizes that social workers are:
- Essential to meeting the immediate needs of those carrying the pain of loss.
- Essential to those navigating overwhelming uncertainty imposed on peoples’ lives.
- Essential to addressing the profound systemic racism thrust into the spotlight by the pandemic, and
- Essential to advocating to reconcile the economic, health and social inequalities glaringly exposed by not only COVID-19, but efforts to flatten the curve as well.
