Thank you for the reminder and encouragement

Great article! Great reminder! Just what I needed. My current job is threatened b/c my appreciation for the SW Code of Ethics supersedes my willingness to cooperate with what appears to be neglect and an agencies inability to provide adequate services to their clients. Where I live, the mental health system appears fundamentally broken. The DHHS appears unaware, unconcerned and/or underfunded. With this powerful reminder, I have faith in my abilities to find a new job after 10 years of social work service. I will finally seek out the job that will permit me to incorporate my ethics into my daily practice. Thanks for this reminder! 🙏🏽

Thanks for reminding us of the link between civility and freedom of speech. We can advocate in a manner that is assertive, effective, and respectful. Our means of advocating for social justice are just as important as the ends.
