Weyman Bennett, Stand up to Racism and Gurnam Singh, Professor of social work, join Michael Lavalette in discussion around the imbalance of BAME deaths during the Covid-19 crisis.
We will be hosting an online forum for social workers across the UK to discuss what is happening to social work right now during the Covid-19 crisis but also what has to change. The crisis has highlighted problems in an already stretched system that has thrown an underlying anger into a howl of rage, as social workers we need to connected to fight for a better social work and society.
You can register online via Eventbrite here. Prior to the meeting you will be sent an email with details to participate.
This will be a private meeting where you will be able to share your experience and fight back so join us and let us build the resistance to the crisis.
The fourth installment of our webinar series with International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW).
