  1. ENGAGE: Immigrants in Michigan: The Untold Story 
ENGAGE: Immigrants in Michigan: The Untold Story

    April 1, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Immigrants have made vast contributions to this state - economically, politically, and socially. The fabric of American society was created by the contributions of a diverse range of immigrants. As a nation, however, we continue to suppress and demonize immigrants. This session explores the untold story of immigrants in Michigan, from undocumented and documented populations, to immigration issues and struggles that we, as social workers, are obligated to be knowledgeable about. 

    Special guests include Executive Director of the Office of Global Michigan; Executive Director of the International Institute, ​Wojciech Zolnowski; Executive Director and Founder of the African Bureau for Immigrant and Social Affairs, Fatou Seydi-Sarr; and founder of the Washtenaw Immigration Rights Coalition (WIRC), Laura Sanders.

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

  6. ENGAGE: Storytelling for Social Justice 
ENGAGE: Storytelling for Social Justice

    April 8, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Storytelling, or listening to the stories of others and sharing your own stories, builds the foundation of human interaction. Telling others how we got here and why we care about an issue builds connection, allows us to share our values, and create meaning. The art of public narrative is used in all aspects of social work practice - from helping our clients rewrite the stories they tell themselves, to helping communities and groups galvanize social change, to helping policy makers and politicians tell a “story of self” while creating a “story of us.” Join us for a special discussion featuring the former Chief Storyteller for the City of Detroit and current NYU Journalism Professor, Aaron Foley; current Chief Storyteller for the City of Detroit, Eric Thomas; and Detroit poet, activist, and author, Jessica Care Moore.

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

  7. Undoing Racism Community Meeting

    April 15, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Join us for our April 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.
