Why? Because social and political action are an essential part
of social work. Here's the NASW Code of Ethics on the subject:
6.04 Social and Political Action
(a) Social workers should engage in social and political
action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to
the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require
to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully. Social
workers should be aware of the impact of the political arena on
practice and should advocate for changes in policy and legislation
to improve social conditions in order to meet basic human needs and
promote social justice.
(b) Social workers should act to expand choice and
opportunity for all people, with special regard for vulnerable,
disadvantaged, oppressed, and exploited people and groups.
(c) Social workers should promote conditions that encourage
respect for cultural and social diversity within the United States
and globally. Social workers should promote policies and practices
that demonstrate respect for difference, support the expansion of
cultural knowledge and resources, advocate for programs and
institutions that demonstrate cultural competence, and promote
policies that safeguard the rights of and confirm equity and social
justice for all people.
(d) Social workers should act to prevent and eliminate
domination of, exploitation of, and discrimination against any
person, group, or class on the basis of race, ethnicity, national
origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or
expression, age, marital status, political belief, religion,
immigration status, or mental or physical ability.
