  4. ENGAGE: Defunding the Police in our Detroit Public Schools »

    February 11, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    From the school to prison pipeline, Black children - and black boys in particular - are punished more harshly, expelled more often, and isolated more frequently than their peers for similar behavior as White students. This affects academic outcomes and achievement, socioeconomic mobility, and shapes one’s sense of self. When teachers, administrators and peers are all affected and shaped by implicit bias because they live in a racist society, how do we expect our institutions to function impartially and fairly? This virtual discussion focuses on the permeation of police officers in our public schools - specifically our majority Black student schools, and how we've effectively created a pathway for Black children from the classroom to the prison.

    Special guests include native Detroit, scholar, and expert on Criminal Justice, assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice Science in the College of Applied Science and Technology in Illinois State University, Dr. Charles Bell. Other panelists include organizers of 482forward who have led the campaign to defund the police in public schools.

    Field credit is offered to students attending this session. Students should check with their field faculty supervisors for more information.

  5. Responding to Human Trafficking in Public and Private Social Impact Organizations »

    February 12, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    U.S. law defines human trafficking as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex acts or labor or services against their will. The one exception involves minors and commercial sex. Inducing a minor into commercial sex is considered human trafficking regardless of the presence of force, fraud or coercion. Although Social Impact Organizations typically are not the first place victims and survivors of human trafficking turn to for support, it is incumbent on organizations to apply social work ethics to provide a culture and an atmosphere that intentionally supports victims and survivors...

  7. Undoing Racism Community Meeting »

    February 18, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Join us for our February meeting to build community collaboration and continue the conversation about anti-racist practice and actions.

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at individual, school and structural levels. This workgroup was established in 2019 after the community took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism workshops, and builds on their anti-racist community organizing model. Our work has been largely focused on building collective community and emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures. 

    We know there are many important efforts going on at SSW; Undoing Racism will amplify all these efforts, including the advocacy sparked by MSW and Doctoral students. No matter what role you play here at SSW, you are always welcome and encouraged to come to Undoing Racism meetings.
