Activism and Advocacy: Where can I start?
The social work profession is evolving, growing, and slowly but surely going back to its roots of activism and advocacy. Even in our roles as clinicians and micro practitioners, advocating for justice and equal rights for the people we serve should be at the top of our list. Words like activism and advocacy can feel overwhelming, especially when our plate is already full. The key is to find something that works for you and identify areas where you feel your skills and knowledge can make a macro impact. The important thing is to start somewhere!
