NASW-MA's Racial Justice Council

Debuts Racial Justice Terms and Definitions


After many months of collaboration, NASW-MA's Racial Justice Council has created a set of terms and definitions to guide the Chapter's racial justice work moving forward. Creating shared language will ensure that we are effective and direct in our work. Download the list of terms and definitions here. If incorporating into your institution or classroom, please provide attribution to NASW-MA's Racial Justice Council.  


Visit to get periodic updates from the Council as we work to integrate racial justice into all internal and external activities of the Chapter.
