In the U.S., political determinants of health include voting, government and policy. But national healthcare policies have not been reflective of our changing population, and elected leadership and policy lack real diversity. To address this, social work and healthcare professionals have joined forces to promote the importance of civic health engagement through voter registration - deemed a social determinant of health. Encouraging and engaging individuals to get involved and make their voices heard in the decision-making behind healthcare policies will lead to healthier communities nationwide. If we are to help create health equity for all, we also need to galvanize social workers and healthcare professionals to explore how they can impact healthcare policy. This event is a forum to help us achieve that goal.
1.5 free CE credits will be available to social workers licensed in the U.S.Alister Martin, MD, MPP

Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.
This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.
The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.
Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from 12-2pm (with some exceptions). All members of our school community are invited to attend.
A Zoom link will be sent out the day of the event to all those who RSVP.Address: University of Michigan School of Social Work 1080 South University Avenue Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1106

Changemakers | A Collectively Devised Play about the Early History of the University of Michigan School of Social Work - New Dates
December 10, 2021 to December 12, 2021
As racial tensions rise on and off campus, three School of Social Work students overcome their differences as the School rallies itself for change in the face of the Great Depression.
This play, commissioned for the University of Michigan, School of Social Work Centennial (1921-2021), in collaboration with the Residential College Drama Program, focuses on the early history of the School and on the students and faculty who worked to create meaningful change in the world. This early period begins at the end of a global Spanish Flu pandemic and World War I and ends during the height of the Great Depression. This period saw the first undergraduate social work curriculum launched on the Ann Arbor campus and ends as the program moves to Detroit where the social work program remained until 1950.
Among the major themes is the struggle for racial justice, including challenging segregation on the University of Michigan campus. Early social work students were involved in an inter-racial alliance group, the Negro-Caucasian Club, that started in 1925 and the efforts of those students are depicted in the play.
This production is Directed by Aria Davis. Produced by Rich Tolman (SSW) and Kate Mendeloff (RC Drama). The cast includes faculty and students from the School of Social Work community.New DatesFriday, December 10, 2021 at 7:30 PMSaturday, December 11, 2021 at 7:30 PMSunday, December 12, 2021 at 3 PMRoom: McGregor Commons
