    Hello, everyone. I'd like to share this statement from several social work groups and encourage you to post and share resources in this space that address anti-Asian racism or similar topics. Joint Statement on Social Work's Call to Action Against Pandemic Othering and Anti-Asian Racism

    The Academy for Social Work and Social Welfare, the Asian Pacific Islander Social Work Educators Association, Council on Social Work Education, Filipinx Social Work Network, Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education in Social Work, Korean American Social Work Educators Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work, Society for Social Work and Research, South Asian Social Work Educators Association, and The St. Louis Group unequivocally stand in solidarity with the Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi* American (APIDA) communities across the United States and around the globe. We condemn the alarming rise in discrimination, oppression, harassment, violence, and racism perpetuated against APIDA people in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    Read the full statement and share your thoughts and resources to "disrupt all forms of anti-Asian racism wherever it occurs and continually work toward creating hope and healing spaces across APIDA communities, U.S. societies, and around the globe."
