Greetings and thank you for visiting the website of the National Association of Black Social Workers.
The National Association of Black Social Workers was and is a group founded in the midst of our struggles to be a self-determining people. We advocate for social change, justice and human development of African people here in the United States and throughout the world. Our affiliate chapters reflect seasoned practitioners and students of African ancestry who continue the struggle for justice and freedom.
In addition to advocacy, support and continually seeking to
uplift our people, NABSW provides critical training through our National and
International Conferences. By members sharing our knowledge and educating
our practitioners in the latest African Centered techniques, we improve
services to those we serve. Our National Conference, the gathering place for Social Work practitioners, researchers, academicians, and scholars, was such an uplifting experience. Check out our Conference Highlights!
Our Code of Ethics guide our actions and determines how we serve all people, with an emphasis on Black people, who historically have received the least from social service programs. NABSW has been in existence for 47 years. The impact upon critical services, keeping our eyes upon African Centered practices and thought; and facing the many and continual challenges confronting us, has been unyielding throughout our existence.
Continue to visit this site often, as it is the hub, for valuable information regarding NABSW and our activities.

12th National President
