SEIU 721 is celebrating National Social Workers Month and salutes our member social workers on the frontlines of pandemic response.
We need social workers now more than ever as our country deals with both the immediate crises and the entrenched problems stressing our society — from a global pandemic that has taken nearly 540,000 lives and triggered the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, to the impacts of systemic racism.
As professionals, social workers strive to help individuals, families and groups overcome barriers to live happy, fulfilled, productive lives. As a profession, social workers are tireless advocates for social justice. They are bending the arc of history toward a more just and inclusive society.
Social Workers are essential and SEIU 721 salutes you!
