On June 16, President Trump issued an Executive Order, “Safe Policing for Safe Communities”, to begin to law enforcement reform. While it is not as strong as CSWA would wish, it is a start. In the spirit of collaboration on this crucial topic, CSWA has written a response to the Order.
To ensure clinical social work ideas get included in the discussion we hope the Order will generate, please send the attached document to all your members of Congress, and state legislators with the following message:
“I am a member of the Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA) and a constituent. The President’s recent Executive Order, “Safe Policing for Safe Communities”, is of great interest to us, as clinical social workers. We offer some suggestions about how to implement the goals of the Order, which we have been working on for decades. Please let me know if there is any way we can help further this discussion.”

As always, let me know when you have contacted your legislators.
