#MacroSW twitter chat on #Ferguson Tonight!

Tonight, if you aren’t watching Scandal (or during the commercials) participate in a Macro Social Work chat led by the Association for Community Organization and Social Administration on #Ferguson. ACOSA released a statement on what Social Workers can do to address and challenge institutional racism in the United States, which you can read here- http://ow.ly/Ck6Pj

The National Association of Social Workers posted this on their blog in August, 10 days after a police officer fatally shot Michael Brown urging social workers to advocate for reforms in police practices: http://www.socialworkblog.org/advocacy/2014/08/police-shootings-underscore-need-for-social-workers-to-press-for-law-enforcement-reforms/

What do you think of the social work response to Ferguson? Are you discussing this with your colleagues, clients or community?
