Radical Hope in a Racialized Society

Event Details

Friday, February 4, 2022
12-3:30 p.m.

The Social Workers Confronting Racial Injustice Conference, organized by the Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work, challenges social workers to engage in racial and social justice action. 

Its goals are to explore the impact of social policies and social services on racial inequities, including the unintended consequences of these policies and services; support social workers working toward an increasingly equitable and racially just society; celebrate the profound social justice actions of our social work community.

The 2022 conference theme is Radical Hope in a Racialized Society. During the conference, hope will be placed as a radical discipline at the core of social work and social justice practice. Sessions will support social workers as they move into anti-racist action with meaningful tangible practices rooted in the assets and strengths of BIPOC communities. Through this, we will take on the challenge of changing ourselves, our organizations, and this society.

The conference is online, open to all (in Wisconsin and beyond), and is free to attend! You need to register for each day individually and each day has a different line-up. Find out much more at
