ROAR: REFLECTIONS ON ORGANIZING AGAINST RACISM
The Undoing Racism Internship Project invites you to speak your piece in the movement for racial justice!
We are calling on all social workers, students, professors, administrators, practitioners, organizers and activists to submit writing for our blog, ROAR: Reflections on Organizing Against Racism.
URIP believes that by telling our stories and embracing our narratives, we can reclaim history and re-envision our future. We envision this blog as a platform to challenge voicelessness and to amplify conversations about dismantling racism. In a movement to undo racism, we need all voices. Discourse is power.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for pieces grounded in personal experience that are at the crossroads of identities and topics. We invite social workers on all paths to share their thoughts and experiences of working for racial justice; from practice issues to personal stories. We aim to create space:
- for students, faculty, deans, and administrators to reflect on the presence or absence of anti-oppressive social work practice in their schools
- to allow our community to share their experiences of success and struggle organizing to undo racism in social work practice
- to deepen analysis and expand the rhetoric around liberatory practices
We ask that your piece be between 700 and 1,000 words.
Need a prompt?
Start with “Dear Schools of Social Work,”
