SWARCK (Social Work Anti-Racist Coalition of Kentucky)
The Social Work Anti-Racist Coalition of Kentucky (SWARCK) announced its list of final recommendations for social workers across the state.
Members of several social work professional associations and individuals gathered in 2020 as part of the response to the pandemic of racism and the growing number of unarmed Black people who died at the hands of police. The spirit of the first meetings demanded an urgent yet sustainable plan to communicate a nontraditional, active, and bold voice against racism in our
communities and, importantly, within our profession. SWARCK followed the lead of prominent BIPOC groups and their proposals on behalf of their communities, including Black Lives Matter and Movement for Black Lives (M4BL).
