ABSW Declaration of Systemic Racism
The Association of Black Social Workers declares that people of African descent have been living in a Global pandemic for over 400 years. The injustices of systemic racism continues to plague our communities in every facet of our lives. What is happening in the United States of America is not a new reality ~ people of African descent living in Canada and here at home in Nova Scotia ~ have endured the psychological trauma of racism for generations.
The Association of Black Social Workers remains committed to fighting the social injustices of Racism in an effort to support the healthy development of African Nova Scotian communities and demand non-African organizations to no longer remain silent. We are seeking those non-African organizations to join us in solidarity to ensure that the message of BLACK LIVES MATTER resonates loud and clear throughout Nova Scotia, Canada and beyond! Will you join us?
