Social Work Month Photo Project
The theme of the 2012 Social Work Month is Social Work Matters. Social work matters because the social work profession has been instrumental in achieving civil rights and human rights advances in the United States and across the globe for more than a century. The primary mission of social work is to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable. These social work matters are the issues that our nation and individuals struggle with and challenges that we must overcome. They include poverty, inequality, insecurity, fear, violence, trauma, loss, and pain. Our world would be radically different without the contributions of social workers.
Social work has built a reputation as the helping profession for over a century and has made significant contributions to the strength and vitality of our country and its communities during that time period. We have done that work through a firm belief in hope and resiliency. Social Work is the profession of hope. Tell us how you inspire hope today.
Help us celebrate our profession in March by answering the question “Social Workers Inspire Hope By…” Deadline: We will be accepting photos through March 31st, however for consideration for the World Social Work Day 2012 Video, photos must be received by March 15th.
