CSWA - Anti-Racism Executive Orders--1-26-21

27 Jan 2021 11:37 AM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)


CSWA is thrilled to see President Biden’s new executive orders today which will be huge steps toward anti-racism and true equity in our country.  They are:

  • To require fair housing policies and eliminate ‘red-lining’ of housing for BIPOC individuals and families
  • To end private prisons which have consistently promoted discriminatory policies and actions toward BIPOC incarcerated individuals
  • To combat the xenophobia that exists toward Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans
  • To strengthen nation-to-nation relationships with Native Americans and Alaska Natives

In addition, President Biden is embedding racial equity in all Federal agencies.  The President wants his team to serve as a model on diversity, including hiring, purchasing, data and access. He has called racial inequality one of the four “converging crises” facing the nation.

CSWA is about to begin a series of six presentations on “Racism and the Clinical Process” in a virtual collaborative format on Wednesday evenings.  For more information go to https://www.clinicalsocialworkassociation.org/event-4134868.

CSWA encourages all members to join us in the anti-racism effort which is finally being addressed at the Federal level.
