NASW Releases its 2021 Blueprint of Federal Social Policy Priorities
Document articulates actions Administration, Congress should take to address COVID-19, systemic racism and other pressing social issues
NASW recently released its 2021 Blueprint of Federal Social Policy Priorities that articulates meaningful actions the Biden-Harris Administration and Congress should take to address the COVID-19 crisis, promote mental and behavioral health, eliminate systemic racism, and ensure civil and human rights for all.
The Blueprint’s 21 issue areas are organized according to the Grand Challenges for Social Work, a research-informed social policy agenda, developed by the social work profession, to address our society’s most pressing social problems. NASW’s Blueprint is a roadmap for social progress and reflects social work’s best thinking on the pathway to a more just and equitable society.
Priority issue areas include, among others:
“Social workers look forward to partnering with the Biden-Harris administration and congressional lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to achieve an inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, build our economy back better for all Americans, and advance the well-being of individuals, families and society,” says NASW President Mildred “Mit” Joyner, DPS, MSW, LCSW.
