Statement from The Network for Social Work Management

The Constitution of the United States describes a “more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty…”

However, the past few weeks have demonstrated anything but the justice and tranquility expressed in the Constitution. Between the killing of a black man and black woman in a convenience store in Kentucky, the murder of 11 people in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, and the fatal shooting in a yoga studio in Tallahassee, which killed two people and wounded five others, tranquil America has been filled with hate, racism, and anti-Semitism.

The Network for Social Work Management trains and develops leaders with the goal of strengthening and improving our diverse sector. We believe that stronger, better prepared leaders means stronger communities. We advocate for positive and peaceful change that builds on a person’s strengths regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or national heritage. We promote leadership using tolerance and acceptance.

As a nation, we can only achieve justice and tranquility by eradicating hate.  Our choosing to respect and accept our differences builds stronger, more inclusive communities.

The Network promotes positive change and believes that to be a changemaker, we must be open and respectful to all people.

Please join the Network in encouraging an end to hate by building a community of love, respect, and tolerance.
