ACOSA Statement: The First 100 Days

ACOSA Issues Statement on the Administration’s First 100 Days

Soon after the inauguration, several ACOSA members called for the organization to issue a statement in response to the policies and personnel being put into place. On April 19th, our Board approved the statement drafted by Steve Burghardt, Michel Coconis, and Stephen Stoeffler:


In this document  we focus on ten areas of concern and feel it is a necessity that every member of our social work profession become active both in resistance to the Administration’s policies and in developing an alternative vision for a better, safer, and more just world. To do anything less is to court the marginalization of the entire profession.


We invite you all to engage in these efforts within CSWE, NASW, and ACOSA. Post your efforts on ACOSA’s Facebook page, tweet them to @acosaorg, or email us the news and resources for us to post on our website. Help the resistance grow. Participate in re-imagining an alternative vision of a more equitable and just world that we all can embrace.
