SWEDAR meets on the 1st Monday of each month from 6:30pm-8:00pm at the Chapter office, located at 50 Broadway, Suite 1001, New York, NY 10004.



SWEDAR is a collective of white NASW-NYC members who meet to better understand and expose white supremacy in the systems in which we work as well as in our personal lives.

This Committee grew out of the Coalition on Race, Diversity, and Intersectionality (CRDI) and utilizes the shared lens of “race and racism as a social construct with power and great systemic impact.”

We are a group of white social workers who are committed to regularly process how racism disconnects us from our humanity and to take the needed steps to move toward a better understanding of our role as gatekeepers in our agencies and hold ourselves, and the structures we are a part of, more accountable in order to better serve our clients. SWEDAR meets separately from other multi-racial groups in order to better position ourselves to organize more effectively with those groups and with other social workers of Color by not overshadowing other voices nor remaining silent.
