Honoring the 70th Anniversary of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights




The next meeting of the Disaster Trauma Committee, NYC-NASW, will be held Friday, November 16, 9 to 11 a.m., at the chapter office, 50 Broadway, 10th floor. All trains to the Wall Street area are within walking distance.


This meeting will honor the 70th anniversary of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, only several weeks before its December 10th date. At this time of continuing and escalating injustice and collective violation, the meeting will highlight the bold and principled actions, advocacy, and activism occurring around us in the public sphere.


To celebrate those who stand up and speak out for human rights, we will participate in reading the words of those speaking truth to power, from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Emma Gonzalez, to founding members of voting rights groups and Black Lives Matter.


All NASW committee members, and social workers across all practice areas, disciplines, and settings, are welcome to attend this meeting to underline our social work commitments to racial and social justice, and to the most basic human rights for our clients, the communities among whom we work, and for all of us.


Thank you for please sending an RSVP to me at Participating across the diversity of our social work, we can create a community of support among us as we strengthen our resolve and determination during this historic time.


Madelyn Miller, PhD, LCSW, chair Disaster Trauma Committee, NYC-NASW

Presentations focus on disasters within a global context, related collective trauma and loss issues as they intersect with resourcefulness and resiliency, and attention to the inevitable impact on social workers of immediate and long-term disaster work.
