Mapping anti-racism activism across Social Work - get involved!

Wayne Reid, BASW Anti-Racism Lead invites social workers to share examples of anti-racism activism

As the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder fast approaches (25/05/21), I want to gather intelligence and map the anti-racism activism that has taken place across Social Work. 

I want to publish my findings and showcase the strides being made in the profession and spotlight where the ‘anti-racism deficits’ exist across the Social Work landscape nationally. 

So, please email me with any ‘evidence’ you have, such as: articles, flyers, group activities, posters, virtual events, statements, updated guidance/policies/procedures to protect and support Social Workers of colour. 

Send me anything and everything your Social Work organisation has undertaken on anti-racism over the past several months! 

Please contact me at wayne.reid@basw.co.uk or @wayne_reid79 (Twitter) to enable me to give your accomplishments a platform. 

I’ll do whatever I can to promote organisations that are really serious about ‘Anti-racism in Social Work’. 

The closing date for submissions is 14/05/21 at 5pm.

Thank you!
