In collaboration with the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), SWHELPER, a digital publication for social work and helping professionals, will host a three-day Anti-Racism Virtual Summit on March 16th – 18th in celebration of World Social Work Day and our National Social Work Month.
With the sponsorship support of Brown School of Social Work at Washington University, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh, and the Joint Masters of Social Work Program at North Carolina A &T University and University of North Carolina at Greensboro, we are able to give wide access to students in order to support their field education training.
We are excited to announce attendees will hear from this year’s keynotes (amongst other notable speakers):
Tim Wise: one of the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States (author of nine books on the subject, he has spent the past 25 years speaking across the country and is a New York Times and MSNBC contributor).
Anjanette Young, LCSW: the founder and owner of Cafe Social Work, she was also the victim of a wrongful police house raid in 2019. Anjanette also has many years’ experience in the Chicago area working in mental health interventions, crisis management, and clinical screening and assessment.
Darla Coffey, PHD, MSW: President and CEO of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) with an extensive background in social work practice in the areas of mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence.
“I will offer a session in the summit in which I will begin by reflecting on the imperative of being a well-informed and committed ally, one that is committed to transformation and not just performing allyship” – Darla Spence Coffey, CEO and President Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
The Summit will be able to provide field placement hours for students. Attendees will get immediate access to the summit’s system and be immediately registered for the livestreams on Crowdcast upon registration completion. Attendees can watch live or view sessions on their schedule until April 30th.
“As the only black and woman owned digital publication in this space, Darla Coffey at CSWE has been instrumental in helping my publication get access to spaces where I had no relationships as well as provided support in relationship building when white validation was needed.” Deona Hooper, MSW Founder and Editor-in-chief of SWHELPER.
